World Health Organization: WARNING! Deadly Disease Wiping Out SCORES In Tourist Spot…

Pneumonic plague has struck the world once more and the results are reminding us how deadly the disease can be yet again.  The plague, which is caused by a bacteria called Yersinia pestisand symptoms resulting from the infection include: shortness of breath, chest pain, stomach cramps, extremely painful headaches, and a high fever.  There are three forms of plague extant in the world today.  Doctors are advising travelers to avoid hot spots until the worst of the plague has ended.

Plague has recently been identified by the World Health Organization in Madagascar, one of the worlds top vacation spots, putting at risk Western tourists hoping to soak up some rays.  Half a million people are expected to travel to the island in the coming year and if they are not aware of the risks they could fall victim as well.

Madagascar is posing a particular risk — deceased bodies infected with the plague have been going missing.  Family members don’t believe in the science surrounding infectious diseases and have been recovering quarantined bodies and re-burying them in family tombs.  This has greatly assisted in the transmission of the disease and is making it very difficult for doctors to assist in the recovery:

Two suspected corpses of plague were stolen from Toamasina and Antananarivo. Their respective families would be responsible.

In secret. The lifeless body of the deceased at Amboditsiry, following a suspicion of pulmonary plague on Wednesday, could not be buried in the mass grave of Anjanahary, asccording to one official of the Municipal Bureau of Hygiene (BMH) yesterday. The victim’s family had reportedly taken him to the Manjakandriana district in the northeast of the capital, where the family tomb was erected. She refused to admit that her loved one succumbed to the plague.

The plague spreads via the inhalation of airborne droplets emitted from an infected person or from contact with that person or their environment.

So far, 33 people have died from an infection, but due to a distrust of medicine from some members of the local population that number is expected to rise.  There are currently 230 known infected individuals but those are only the ones willing to come forward for treatment.  That number could rise to the tens of thousands rather quickly.

What’s Being Done To Stop It:

The WHO has announced efforts to curb the disease.  They have dispatched over a million antibiotics to the large African island in hopes that they can convince the population there to be proactive.  The disease will kill you within 72 hours once symptoms are present and only about 60-80% of the treated patients will ever recover.  The plague ravages your internal organs and wears your body down — starting with your lungs.

Here’s what the WHO said:

“Plague is curable if detected in time. Our teams are working to ensure that everyone at risk has access to protection and treatment. The faster we move, the more lives we save,” said Dr. Charlotte Ndiaye, WHO Representative in Madagascar.

WHO has delivered 1 190 000 doses of antibiotics to the Ministry of Health and partners this week, and a further supply of 244 000 doses is expected in the days ahead.

The different types of drugs will be used for both curative and prophylactic care. They are enough to treat up to 5000 patients and protect up to 100 000 people who may be exposed to the disease.

Madagascar actually faces an annual plague outbreak–but this year is vastly different than all the rest.  In a typical “plague season” the island nation can expect to see an average of 200 outbreaks.  There have already been 231 reported cases.

 Will It Spread To The United States? What can you do to stay safe?

In some cases, it already has hit the Americas: New Mexico saw two victims.

Right now, there is little reason to fear the spread of plague in the United States–but that doesn’t mean an isolated case won’t develop.  In June of this year, two middle-aged victims in New Mexico fell ill to the disease:

The two new confirmed infections were both in older middle-aged women — a 52-year-old and a 62-year-old — and both are being treated and have been hospitalized. The first case of the year, according to the state’s health department, was that of a 63-year-old man. He is said to have recovered from the disease as well.

Here’s some final information to be aware of:

  • Plague is transmitted between animals and humans by the bite of infected fleas, direct contact with infected tissues, and inhalation of infected respiratory droplets.
  • Plague can be a very severe disease in people, with a case-fatality ratio of 30% to 60% for the bubonic type, and is always fatal for the pneumonic kind when left untreated.

Madagascar has 110 international hotels on its island in addition to the other 400 establishments that offer cheaper room and board.  If you must travel to Madagascar this winter, doctors suggest you stay at one of those.
