The incidence of plague is infrequent for humans but can be very serious, and people need to be a cautious plague.
Plague is mostly spread by fly bites that can infect humans through squirrels and other wild rats. Dogs and cats can also carry the plague virus.
If it’s detected early, the infectious disease can quickly treat with antibiotics; however, symptoms of frequent plagues, such as nausea, fever, lymph node blockage, and other symptoms appear about two weeks later. In the United States, seven people are infected with the plague each year.
