Bubonic Plague Scientific Name
The organism causing: The disease is called Yersinia pestis and the disease is really called plague. Either bubonic plague (swollen and infected lymph node), septicemic plague (in the blood stream) or pneumonic plague (in the lung) or combination. The pneumonic form can spread from person to person.
Yes and no: It will come through again and cause widespread mortality if and only if there is a massive collapse in society (i.e., a nuclear war) and people are once again foolish enough to stop keeping cats. You won't meet pneumonic or septicemic disease in today's world and if you meet the bubonic form from a woodchuck's fleas, you'll be sick in time for shotgun antibiotics to cure you.
Ebola: The ebola virus is vary rare, but causes a rapid death by bleeding and suffocation in your own secretions. Pretty awesome.
Thankfully, not sure: Best description I ever read was http://tinyurl. Com/4gvjk nobody I know has ever seen a "the plague" and historians argue whether we really know what caused the 14th century epidemic. We are taught it was caused by the bacteria Yersinia pestis. There is no proof, but good circumstantial evidence. Some argue modern Yersinia disease is different, but it probably evolved/mutated over 700+ years.
Plague: Fever, chills and extremely painful lymph node swelling usually in the groin or axilla.
It depends..: Some people survived. Most people developed symptoms within two-three days of exposure. Depending on the type of plague (bubonic, septicemic or pneumonic)., they could be gone in 24 hours. Fortunately, it is uncommon in the U.S. and is treatable.
Plague: Most cases are bubonic...Fever and very painful bubo (lymph node).
Bubonic plague: Is extremely uncommon today in 2012 there were a few cases reported in col and oregon, and in 2013 a squirrel tested + in a forest near la, u have a much greater chance of catching 100, 000 other things before that.See 1 more doctor answer
Same: Both are the same. The medical name is typhoid fever.
Lots: The hallmark of bubonic disease is the bubo, an extremely painful infected lymph node draining the area where the infected flea fed on the person. Pneumonic plague, the only transmissible form of the infection, can occur from spread of the bubonic stage through the bloodstream or be acquired airborne from someone else with pneumonic plague.See 1 more doctor answer
