What's to blame for the recent bubonic plague uptick?
from By Katina Smallwood
A Michigan resident recently became the 14th person this year to contract the plague, the same disease that was responsible for the Black Death pandemic in Europe in the 1300s. Although the plague has never officially been eradicated, instances of infection usually remain low in the U.S., averaging around seven cases per year. The 14 reported cases have been mostly of the bubonic form of the plague, which is spread to humans from infected rodents or flea bites.
