Oh ya totally. It is very interesting. My understanding of that plague is that with modern advances or if it grips a modernized community it wouldn't stand a chance. That being said it could mutate or simply ravage 3rd world nations.

If this plague is really back there is no doubt it was introduced because it has been gone too long. We will have to wait and see for sure.

The dangers of pneumonic plague have been known for quite some time. The danger became better known after 9/11 and the anthrax attacks. Plague was mentioned as one of the many possible biologic weapons that could be used against a population.

Pneumonic plague is a highly contagious and extremely dangerous disease. Without proper treatment, the mortality rate is about 60%. Treated immediately, the mortality rate drops below 5%. Unfortunately, there is often a delay in diagnosis.

It doesn't appear that pneumonic plague is happening anywhere, except possibly in China. The outbreak of URI in Ukraine seems to be viral, possibly H1N1 or perhaps something else.

So, as of right now, I don't see anything much to worry about.

this was a few months ago in China -

they managed to contain this outbreak, but in a larger city, it could be devastating. Basically, you have 24hrs to get the Antibiotics, or your 90% certain to die.

Imagine this in a city with 5 million people.
