“A large outbreak of plague, including the rare form known as pneumonic plague, has health officials in Madagascar working to prevent the bacterial infection from spreading to neighboring countries. The World Health Organization (WHO) says there have been more than 1,800 confirmed, probable or suspected cases of plague since Aug. 1, including 127 deaths.
Dr. Pritish Tosh, an infectious diseases specialist at Mayo Clinic says, “Public officials are concerned about this going on in Madagascar and potentially moving to neighboring areas. At this point, I think it’s unlikely that this is going to go much farther beyond that just because by the time people are able to transmit, they are pretty sick.””
I think it’s unlikely – thank you, official science people!
Note something in common with the recent form of Ebola – airborne transmission.
What circulates on a flight?
All these diseases are evolving beyond bodily fluids and physical contact.
They’re atomising between their human ‘vectors’.
Obviously this has been predicted, ever since Malthus but by states too.
I singled out a passage on the subject, it was so overt.
“A major pandemic may be the instrument that causes a reverse in the process of globalization as national responses to contain infection will involve significant restrictions on personal mobility and interaction over a lengthy period. Some states may even be destabilized by the effort and resources required to address the situation””
Well, it wouldn’t be the worst thing.
It’s almost like borders formed for a reason. Same reason we used to trebuchet plague-ridden bodies into our enemys’ fortresses.
This is how we do things in Europe.
White people. Bitchier than yow.
