Did you Know… Every year around 3000 people get Bubonic plague?

Fact, snippets of useless information and all of that kind of thing makes up most of what’s in my brain – so I thought I would infect the general interweb with al of this and see what fact I can trawl for you!

Enjoy!

Did you know…

Every year around 3000 people get Bubonic plague? I imagine we’re still not immune to it…

  1. I did know this one. Well, I didn’t know the exact number of people who still got it, but I did know that the number was not zero. It’s kind of a tribute to how far we’ve come that what used to be a persistent and ubiquitous threat to human civilization is now a minor bit of medical trivia.

  2. How many people still die from it, considering the treatments available? I hear there’s also some polio on mainland Europe–these diseases never go away, so it’s important to keep getting vaccinated:-)
