  • One Dead, Three Infected With Plague In Colorado

    Three more people in Colorado have been diagnosed with the plague after coming in contact with an infected dog whose owner contracted a life-threatening form of the disease, state health officials said on Friday.
    In all, four people were infected with the disease from the same source, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said in a statement.
    Last week the department said a man in an eastern Colorado county whose dog died of the plague had been diagnosed with pneumonic plague, a rare and serious form of the disease.
    The man remains hospitalized, but authorities have not released his condition.
    The three people in the latest reported cases had "mild symptoms" and have fully recovered after being treated with antibiotics, the department said, adding that they are no longer contagious.
    Two of the patients in the new cases contracted pneumonic plague, the department said.
    Pneumonic plague is the only form of the disease that can be transmitted person-to-person, usually through infectious droplets from coughing.

    We had 1 case up in Yosemite, kid is ok, recovering. Don't know if it was pneumonic or not though. Probably bubonic if the kid is ok and his family is fine. It looks like a bad flea year, kids are seeing a lot in the backyard so it's off to find some foodgrade DE!

      Looks like ACG's quarantine procedures may have to go into effect. Do we have any members from Colorado?

            Feel free. It's been done before. Remember, be sure to shut down your computer and don't touch it until the panic is over. Everybody knows that computers are infected with thousands of dangerous viruses.

            Meanwhile, Pax and I are flea dusting our dogs and cats. We have a lot of prairie dogs in our area lower down the slopes, and they also carry plague.

                Seal the borders, travel bans? Just until things are under control.
