    A 16 year old Oregon huntress get the plague!

    Unfortunate girl got the plague last month while hunting with her dad. I guess you never know what the day will bring. We only get about 8 cases in the whole US each year. Sorry, I mean got the plague.

    Death if it occurs is typically within ten days.
    I wish her well, poor kid.

    I believe it's quite treatable with modern antibiotics. I think one of the major worries about antibiotic resistance is that it could develop in the kinds of bacteria which cause plague and another pandemic could occur, but given that the incidence of plague is now relatively low and modern hygiene is generally improved, I think it's considered an unlikely scenario.
