As I have been reporting, we need to take this recent Black Death outbreak seriously. The news now is of medics treating patients infected by the lethal pneumonic plague ravaging Madagascar have been struck down by the deadly disease.
Doctors have issued warnings about a new strain of the airborne disease which “can kill in three hours”, local reports say. Dr Derek Gatherer, from Lancaster University, revealed the plague could spiral out of control in the same way Ebola did back in 2014.
But what’s truly terrifying is that some of these people believe it’s a government scam to get more money. Their understanding of the disease is rudimentary and potentially very dangerous.
