Madagascar Hospitals On High Alert: "No One Is Safe" From The Black Plague

Travelers are being warned to keep their distance from areas of Madagascar affected by the bubonic plague. As the outbreak worsens, some doctors are even warning that “no one is safe” from the disease.

The outbreak of the black plague in Madagascar has so far killed 97 people, and doctors are warning that it will be continuing to spread and worsen, meaning no one is safe. Health officials say the disease, which contributed to the deaths of more than 50 million people in Europe during the Middle Ages, has spread from rural areas to the more urban areas not usually affected. Hundreds of cases are reported on the tropical island every year, but experts are warning the epidemic is “much more dangerous” than in previous years.

Officials have reported infections in 17 of the island nation’s 22 regions since the outbreak started in August. And the number of cases is growing by the day, said Elhadj As Sy, the secretary general of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) as the nation put all hospitals on high alert. The hospitals have also begun implementing preventative measures with attempts to stall the spread of the bacterial infection.

The IFRC said it’s introducing the same “safe and dignified” burial methods used in West Africa during the 2014 Ebola epidemic. This helps cut the chain of transmission by preventing further infections through direct contact with infected corpses.

Last week, less than 60 people had died and around 600 had been infected. Now, there are 911 confirmed cases in addition to the almost 100 deaths. While cases of bubonic plague occur in Madagascar nearly every year, the much more dangerous and deadly pneumonic plague has never been so prevalent. It arrived earlier than expected this year, and has become much more contagious with it being transmitted from person to person through the air. Pneumonic plague is the most life-threatening form of the infection caused by the manifestation of a Yersinia pestis bacterial infection.

Although the black plague can be treated effectively with antibiotics, the incubation time of this bacteria is incredibly short. Death often occurs within 12-24 hours of becoming infected. The bubonic strain of the disease is spread through the bites of infected fleas, whereas the more contagious and deadly pneumonic type is spread through the coughing or sneezing of an infected person.

Elhadj As Sy said that overcoming the epidemic would require long-term help, not “just intervening at the peak and then forgetting about it”. Dr. Manitra Rakotoarivony, Madagascar’s director of health promotion, said: “Normally, people who catch the plague live in poor areas, but people in every place in society are catching the disease.”

Jimmy Whitworth, professor of International Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, told The Sun: “It has been a long time since we have seen the plague in an urban environment.

Although health officials have said that internationally, the threat is still fairly low, they’ve also said no one in Madagascar is safe, including travelers, spiking concerns over a possible global pandemic.

Isn't there an Obama appointed judge somewhere who can order all of these diseased people brought into the U.S. and settled into mostly white, Trump voting, neighborhoods? Doesn't the Constitution demand this?

But it kills fast, so it isn't so exciting as say, smallpox.

Same problem with the otherwise-promising Ebola. No proper Zombies walking about for days, they just fall down dead, can't get the staff, and Hallowe'en coming up too, what a disappointment!

I used to root for death and disease until I went to the 3rd world and found out most of the poor folk there did not lust for revolution or a hand out.  That's what the United States Gimmeedats are like but not so much the poor outside the USA.  Inside the USA they have not been trained by our banking overlourds to act menacing towards the Tax Donkeys to keep them paying up thereby maintaining the EBT card balances.

All I can say is what a crappy world and it's mostly because of people so frivolously ignoring how they are controlled by the bankers.  It's a mockery of a travesty.

People with hygiene and sanitation and proper nutrition aren't going to get sick, or die from this.  Compromised immune systems?  Poor nutrition and sanitation?   Probably.

Actually Diotomacious Earth is the best remedy for every insect that it comes into contact with. It physically scrapes their waxy layer away that every insect must have to keep from becoming dehydrated... thereby dehydrating them, in turn killing them. It works great on even the worst roach infestations *shudder*. Anyways, my mother just used it down south to get rid of a 30x30ft ant nest in a weeks time. Not one left!

How about we start with you?

The world is perfectly capable of supporting all the people on it now. Government restrictions and harebrained schemes are the cause of any lack of food in a country.

I would lay odds - no kids. I find that people who relegate their line to extinction are the most likely to advocate for a die out of other lines as well.

They are not human, they will soon be a side branch that died out. Dead humanoids walking. Such non-people do not deserve a say in the future of the world.

Always wondered why that woman chooses to use so much hair relaxer in what would be just another garden variety nappy head.    Must have something to do with being recognized as someone more elevated than the people she claims to represent...

We can almost guarantee that blackops or Big Pharm will make sure someone infected arrives in the USA. We need a new fear here....

You could always call it a very dark van dyke brown plage. That might not be racist.

No, forget it. Men with van dyke beards will feel upset.

Taking colloidal silver can protect you from the Black Plague.

LOL! Yes, and rubbing garlic and apple cider vinegar on your penis hole works well too.

hmmmm... will garlic powder work?

Well it would certainly give you a more exciting sheen to your skin. And probably your eyes too.

Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to metallic vinyl-wrap yourself and be done with it?

I'm sure the CDC's working hard for that outcome or atleast a patent on it. No doubt they'll want to take it to Houston to "study it". Chuck Heston's getting on a chopper.

It's a rare disease that infects between 5 and 15 people in the US annually, primarily in the Southwestern region of the country.

If you visit The Grand Canyon, beware of the little ground squirrels / chipmunks. They have little fear of humans and are known carriers of the plague.
