Types of plague
Plague can be transmitted and cause illness in one or more of these forms:
When the Y. pestis bacteria enters the body through the bite of an infected flea or through a cut or break in the skin, the resulting disease is called bubonic plague. “Buboes” are swollen painful lymph nodes. Bubonic plague is the most common form of the disease and untreated it may progress to septicemic plague (see below).
When Y. pestis bacteria accumulate in the bloodstream, septic shock occurs and the resulting disease is called septicemic plague.
When Y. pestis bacteria are inhaled, they lodge in the lungs and the resulting disease is called pneumonic plague. Pneumonic plague is of particular concern because it can be spread from person to person.
How is pneumonic plague spread? What are the symptoms?
Pneumonic plague occurs when the Y. pestis bacterium is inhaled. The disease may be spread through face-to-face contact when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Because it enters the body by being inhaled, pneumonic plague could be spread intentionally if the bacteria were put into aerosol form.
The symptoms of pneumonic plague begin one to four days after exposure to the bacteria. The symptoms include fever, headache, weakness and a bloody or watery cough due to infection of the lungs (pneumonia). The pneumonia rapidly becomes worse and — without early treatment — it can be fatal.

Wait, is this just the Plague outbreak that China is again blaming on something else? Seems to me that the good old Chinese sees to have forgotten that another time in history a raspatory illness came from that place right before the plague started to go everywhere.
