Black Death plague warning: Outbreak confirmed by World Health Organisation

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator

A DEADLY outbreak of bubonic and pneumonic plague, which has been attributed to the Black Death, has killed at least 33 people, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).



The WHO, which has been working alongside Madagascar’s Ministry of Health, confirmed more than 231 people had been infected with the contagious plague and officials have warned the risk of the epidemic spreading is “high”.

More than 50 million people in Europe were killed by the Black Death in the 1300s, which many historians believe was caused by several killer diseases including the pneumonic plague.

Eastern and central Madagascar have been worst hit by the outbreak, sparking emergency funding from the WHO.

    Black Death plague latest: Outbreak ‘SPREADING FAST’ and could hit USA – shock warning

    AN OUTBREAK of pneumonic plague - commonly known as the Black Death - has killed at least 45 people and could become an epidemic in the United States, experts have warned.

    More than 231 cases of the contagious disease have been recorded in Madagascar this year, and the number of deaths is higher than in previous years due to the country's "deteriorating" medical services.

    And experts in the United States have warned "continued underinvestment" in health services there could see the disease spread rapidly in to an epidemic. 

    In August, a public health warning was issued in northern Arizona after fleas had tested positive for pneumonic plague. 

    The bubonic strain of the disease is passed on by flea bites, whereas the more infectious pneumonic type is spread through coughing.

    Black Death plague warning: 124 DEAD and hundreds infected as 'killer outbreak spreading'

    A DEADLY outbreak of bubonic and pneumonic plague, which has been attributed to the Black Death, has killed at least 124 people with health officials warning “the number of cases is growing”.

    The death toll from Madagascar's plague outbreak has reached 124 with a total of 1,133 infected, as it rapidly spreads through the African nation.

    More than 50million people in Europe were killed by the Black Death in the 1300s, which many historians believe was caused by several killer diseases including the pneumonic plague.

    Most of the victims recorded in Madagascar have been infected with the highly contagious pneumonic form. The bubonic variant is considered less dangerous.

    Health officials have warned “the number of cases is growing” despite claims from the Madagascar government there has been a decrease.

    Africa braced for epidemic of deadly airborne PLAGUE after it infects 1,300 people in Madagascar and map reveals the nine countries officials fear it will spread to next


    More than 1,300 cases of the deadly airborne plague have now been reported in Madagascar, with officials from the World Health Organization now fearing the outbreak will spread across Africa. Two thirds of those cases are suspected to be pneumonic - described as the 'deadliest and most rapid form of plague', World Health Organization figures show. The outbreak is moving quickly, with several British holiday hotspots now deemed at risk of the epidemic spreading, including Seychelles, South Africa and La Reunion. Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros and Mauritius are the six other countries to have received the heightened alert. It has been reported as many as 50 aid workers are believed to have been among the people infected.

    Deadly airborne plague in Madagascar is now at 'crisis' point and the 'worst outbreak in 50 years' as cases rocket by almost 40% in just 5 DAYS and could hit a further 20,000 in weeks

    • The World Health Organization now states there are 1,801 suspected cases
    • This is significantly higher than the 1,309 the agency reported last Thursday
    • Professor Robin May, an infectious diseases expert at Birmingham University, told MailOnline that the outbreak is 'concerning definitely'
    • Analysis of figures by MailOnline show the epidemic could strike a further 20,000 people in just a matter of weeks, if current trends continue 
    • The 'unprecedented' outbreak has prompted warnings in 9 nearby countries

    The deadly airborne plague spreading rapidly across Madagascar is now at 'crisis' point as cases have rocketed by 37 per cent in just five days, official figures reveal.

    The outbreak, the 'worst in 50 years', is being fueled by a strain more lethal than the one which usually strikes the country off the coast of Africa.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) now states there are 1,801 suspected cases - significantly higher than the 1,309 it reported last Thursday.

    Academics have revealed such a jump in cases over the period of five days is concerning and have predicted it could get worse. The most recent statistics show there have been 127 deaths.

    Professor Robin May, an infectious diseases expert at Birmingham University, told MailOnline that 'whichever way you look' at the outbreak, it’s 'concerning definitely'.

    Analysis of figures by MailOnline show the epidemic could strike a further 20,000 people in just a matter of weeks, if current trends continue. It could be made worse by crowds gathering for an annual celebration to honour the dead earlier this week.

    The 'truly unprecedented' outbreak has prompted warnings in nine nearby countries - South Africa, Seychelles, La Reunion, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros and Mauritius.

    New Black Death FOUND: Deadly virus WORSE than plague and with no CURE breaks out - WHO

    A DEADLY outbreak of a rare and highly fatal virus has broken out in eastern Uganda and five cases have already been identified, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has confirmed.

    The disease, known as Marburg virus disease (MVD), is similar to Ebola and can be lethal in up to 90 per cent of cases.

    Emergency screening has begun at the Kenya-Uganda border in Turkana after three members of the same family died of the disease in Uganda.

    The outbreak is thought to have started in September when a man in his 30s, who worked as a game hunter and lived near a cave with a heavy presence of bats, was admitted to a local health centre with a high fever, vomiting and diarrhoea.

    He did not respond to antimalarial treatment and his condition rapidly deteriorated.

  • Seems bats (flying foxes) are responsible for several diseases, the Hendra virus which first affected race horses and a human in the Hendra area Qld Australia, Lyssavirus and Ebola.  Marburg virus is carried by bats and likely Green Monkeys. Black Death is carried by small rodents such as rats.

    Marburg virus disease facts
    • Marburg virus disease is endemic in Africa (likely in African green monkeys and certain bats) and can be transmitted to humans.
    • The disease can be transmitted from person to person by exposure to blood and other bodily secretions.

    Madagascar plague death toll rises to 165 as scientists fear deadly virus WILL reach US, Europe and Britain and could mutate to become UNTREATABLE

    • World Health Organization data shows a 15% jump in fatalities over three days
    • Scientists are worried the 'worst outbreak in 50 years' has reached 'crisis' point
    • At least 2,034 people have been struck down by a more lethal form of the plague 
    • Ten countries have been placed on high alert, with Malawi now bracing itself
    • Other scientists fear this year's outbreak will reach well beyond mainland Africa
    • Two thirds of all the cases have been caused by the airborne pneumonic plague
    • This can spread through coughing, sneezing or spitting and kill within 24 hours

    The plague death toll shows no sign of slowing as official figures reveal 165 have now lost their lives in Madagascar's 'worst outbreak in 50 years'.

    Data shows a 15 per cent jump in fatalities over three days, with scientists concerned it has reached 'crisis' point and 10 countries now placed on high alert.

    At least 2,034 people have been struck down by a more lethal form of the 'medieval disease' so far in the country off the coast of Africa, according to WHO statistics.

    Some experts fear the disease could mutate and become untreatable during this year's outbreak - which is expected to blight Madagascar until April.

    Others worry the plague will go beyond mainland Africa and eventually reach the US, Europe and Britain, leaving millions more vulnerable due to how quick it can spread. 

    Experts warn the outbreak of plague in Madagascar this year is being fueled by a strain more lethal than the one which usually strikes the country.

    Two thirds of cases have been caused by the airborne pneumonic plague, which can be spread through coughing, sneezing or spitting and kill within 24 hours.

    It is strikingly different to the bubonic form, responsible for the 'Black Death' in the 14th century, which strikes the country each year and infects around 600 people.

  • I suppose I should clarify.  During the time of the "Black Death" plague in Europe, thieves would often loot the dead bodies.  Even though the plague was highly contagious, the thieves seemed to be immune.  Apparently, the thieves would smear Thieves Oil on their bodies.  This Thieves Oil helped prevent them from contracting the plague.  My previous post was a link to an article that provides recipes for Thieves Oil.

    Ahhh, very interesting to see where "thieves oil" got its name from. That's pretty cool :plus_one:

    'It's not possible to eradicate plague': Scientists warn deadly disease will ravage the planet for ETERNITY as Madagascar's 'worst outbreak in 50 years' continues to escalate

    • World Health Organization data shows 2,119 people have now been infected
    • Scientists are worried the 'worst outbreak in 50 years' has reached 'crisis' point
    • Ten countries have been placed on high alert as experts fear it will reach Africa
    • Other scientists fear this year's outbreak will reach well beyond mainland Africa
    • Two thirds of all the cases have been caused by the airborne pneumonic plague
    • This can spread through coughing, sneezing or spitting and kill within 24 hours

    The deadly plague will never be eradicated, scientists have warned amid fears the situation in Madagascar is spiralling out of control.

    At least 171 people have died in the country off the coast of Africa's 'worst outbreak in 50 years' and 2,119 have been infected, World Health Organization figures show.

    International aid workers are desperately battling to contain the 'crisis', which has prompted 10 nearby African countries to be placed on high alert by the WHO.

    Professor Allen Cheng, an infectious disease expert at Monash University, warned of the dangers of the plague and said this year's outbreak has been 'unusual' - because it is airborne.

    He wrote in a piece for The Conversation: 'It’s not possible to eradicate plague, as it is widespread in wildlife rodents outside the sphere of human influence.'

    Plague, caused by the Yersina pestis bacteria, killed hundreds of millions of people in three devastating outbreaks, including the Plague of Justinian in the 6th century.

    It is easily treated with antibiotics in the current climate - however, experts are still concerned it will cause eternal havoc because it is constantly mutating.

    Kyle Harper, a professor of classics and letters at the University of Oklahoma, said biological evolution is 'cunning and dangerous'.

    Patients infected with the plague in Madagascar are escaping from hospital because they are afraid of NEEDLES sparking fears disease could spread across ten African countries

    • Security guards at The Central Anti-Plague Hospital Ambohimindra have been stopping patients from escaping after at least one ran away in October
    • Unicef's deputy representative said some patients are afraid of needles  
    • The World Health Organisation (WHO) revealed the death toll has risen to 171

    Patients infected with the plague in Madagascar are escaping from hospital because they are afraid of needles and not used to hospitals, prompting fears the disease could spread.

    Security guards at The Central Anti-Plague Hospital Ambohimindra in the island's capital Antananarivo have been stopping patients from running away after at least one escaped in October before being forced back into an ambulance.

    According to deputy representative of Unicef Jean Benoit Manhes, some patients are scared of needles.
