What are the symptoms of bubonic plague?

Is there any chance of it coming back?


Answer by  Kath (1537)

The symptoms of bubonic plague are swollen glands, chills, high fever, and seizures. Symptoms appear 2-5 days after exposure. The bacteria is transmitted by fleas on rodents. The fleas bite the people and they get the plague. There have been cases reported in 2010, but we can better treat these breakouts now.

Symptoms vary from one individual to another but common symptoms are chills, fever, seizures, painful lymph gland swelling. In 2010, cases of bubonic plague were reported in Peru and one in Oregon. So it is already coming back, but thanks to modern medicine we know how to deal with it.

The Bubonic Plague actually still exists, but is extremely rare. There are a few cases each year, and they are now treatable with antibiotics. Symptoms include generalized flu-like symptoms and swollen, blackish-colored lymph nodes. In the United States, some desert mice in the American southwest have been known to be carriers of this disease.
