    No other people in Crook County have been infected with the plague, according to OHA spokesman Jonathan Modie.

    Plague case confirmed in Michigan

    Epidemiologists with Oregon Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta are working with Crook, Deschutes and Morrow county health officials to investigate the illness.

    "Many people think of the plague as a disease of the past, but it's still very much present in our environment, particularly among wildlife," said state public health veterinarian Emilio DeBess. "Fortunately, plague remains a rare disease, but people need to take appropriate precautions with wildlife and their pets to keep it that way."

    Bubonic plague is a bacterial disease carried by rodents and their fleas, according to the CDC.

    If detected early, the disease is treatable with antibiotics. Only eight human cases have been diagnosed in the state since 1995, and no deaths have been reported, according to the OH

    Guess there's something to be said for living in the concrete jungle. I've never even been camping, and it's certainly not on my bucket list.

    Poor kid. Hope she recovers quickly.

    Alot of those old time deadly diseases are still around and available in the US, we don't die from them like we used to. Rats, rodents etc spread them and we tend to keep those under control. But you'd be suprised. Leprosy is still around. Typhoid. Fun stuff.

    Meet my friends John Tull and Lucinda Marker.
    They both got it. John has since passed, but Lucinda is alive and well in Santa Fe. This website chronicles their story. I have known John for 10 years, great man he was.
