The Bubonic Plauge

Were you looking for information about the The Bubonic Plague? The bubonic plauge is a common misspelling of the bubonic plague.
 
The bubonic plague is an infectious disease that affects humans, rodents, and ectoparasites, like fleas and lice. The mortality rate for this condition is 50 to 90 percent if left untreated; this rate drops to 15 percent when the disease is diagnosed and treated early. When this disease is suspected, the person is often hospitalized and placed in isolation while the diagnosis is confirmed.
 
Symptoms of bubonic plague can occur within two to six days of being infected by the bacteria Yersinia pestis. If left untreated, symptoms such as vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea can progress rapidly. Approximately 10 to 20 percent of people will also develop symptoms in the lungs.
