PRINEVILLE, Ore. -- Crook County health officials said Monday they are investigating a probable case of human plague involving a man in his 50s who is being treated at a local hospital.

Contacts with the individual have been notified and are receiving preventive antibiotics, officials said. The man reported contact with a sick cat in his neighborhood, they added.

Crook County officials did not identify the man, citing patient confidentiality regulations, but a family member contacted NewsChannel 21, which then learned the Prineville-area man remained in critical condition Tuesday at St. Charles Medical Center-Bend. A family member told us he's been only given 30 percent survival odds at present.

You'd be surprised how often it occurs. There are an average of 15-20 cases in the United States per year, and 1,000-3,000 worldwide every year.


Since then, human plague in the United States has occurred as mostly scattered cases in rural areas (an average of 10 to 15 persons each year). Globally, the World Health Organization reports 1,000 to 3,000 cases of plague every year. In North America, plague is found in certain animals and their fleas from the Pacific Coast to the Great Plains, and from southwestern Canada to Mexico. Most human cases in the United States occur in two regions: 1) northern New Mexico, northern Arizona, and southern Colorado; and 2) California, southern Oregon, and far western Nevada. Plague also exists in Africa, Asia, and South America (see map).

Lets hope this isnt going to spread, there have been other cases of the plague in recent times though. So, lets hope for the best!

Plague is not as rare as one might think!
Thankfully it is fairly treatable if caught early.

There are treatments for it, that are more effective if it's caught early. If they suspect that you have it, they immediately start you on antibiotics, then run tests. There's no cure per se. The Black Death simply died out, because the population dropped so low.

There is a cure but, there is not a lot of it. Really hope in never decides to go rampaging again. Would not be a pretty sight.

Everything that I've read about it says that anitbiotics are the only treatment for it, there isn't a cure. But the antibiotics in use are pretty effective against it, especially if caught early. That's why they start you on them even before confirming you have it if they think you do.

I apologize. Yes, they use antibiotics which, if your caught early enough, will lead to the death of the disease. I used the word cure loosely as to me, if you are no longer sick with zero chance of regression, you are cured.

Probably caught it from ground squirrels, a bit of tetracyclene or sterptomycine and he'll be just fine.
Not hearing the scarey music.

no one thinks about the plague in a SHTF possibility.

or what about strategically placed plague?

especially if caught early.


this is all articles are stating..

not .. specifically .. within 3days, 1 week ect.. all I'm seeing is .."if caught early" don't they have a responsibility to TELL us exactly how early is 'early' ???

This isn't necessarily directed at you.. but in general ..

appreciate the input

You could say I have had that discussion with people. How effective would it be? I think it would have a high rate of success.

Antibiotics will cure you, but I think of a "cure" as something that targets that specific organism, where antibiotics just boost your immune system.

It doesn't show up as something you can point to from the start as plague. The symptoms start within 2-10 days, but they start as fever, chills, etc. It appears as a normal flu like virus or even a cold.

So is all the ChemTrailing meant to overwork our systems. to constantly make our systems fight off the crap going into our lungs, to like wear us out for an onslaught of whatever they decide to throw at us so we can't naturally fight it (them) off ? Plagues, Flesh-Eating Diseases, or whatever? Just thinkin' is all ...... Syx.
