Bubonic Plague Transmission

Bubonic Plague Transmission Through Direct Contact

Bubonic plague transmission can also occur through direct contact with infected tissue or bodily fluids. For example, people can become directly infected with plague by handling infected rodents, rabbits, or wild carnivores that prey on these animals, when plague bacteria enter through the person's skin.
