In brief: 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.
