Plague Breaks Out in Arizona
Fleas tested at Northern Arizona University recently were found to be carrying the plague.
The deadly disease killed millions in the middle ages.
The number of cases of the plague has grown in recent years.
Authorities say the outbreaks are normal during cool summers… There goes the global warming narrative!
Fleas in two northern Arizona counties have tested positive for the plague, the infamous disease that killed millions in the middle ages.
Residents and tourists camping the areas are warned to avoid contact with dead animals and burrowing rodents, which may carry the fleas. Pets should not be allowed to roam free.
The CDC says outbreaks of the plague occasionally happen in the southwest during cool summers that follow wet winters. While deadly centuries ago, the plague can be treated with antibiotics.
