We thought this plague was gone for good, but we were wrong…

A 16 year-old girl reportedly caught the bubonic plague while on a hunting trip in Oregon last month, and doctors believe she may have gotten infected by a flea. According to Conservative Tribune, the anonymous girl became sick five days after she embarked on a trip near Heppner, in Morrow County on October 16.

Though most Americans believe the bubonic plague is a thing of the past, there have been a total of eight cases in Oregon in the last 20 years. Luckily, none of them have been fatal.

A total of sixteen bubonic plague cases have been reported in the U.S. this year, and there have been four fatalities so far. Symptoms of the plague include high fever, lethargy and swollen lymph nodes, and it’s treatable with antibiotics if it’s caught early enough. If left untreated, however, it can result in a very painful death.

We can only pray that the bubonic plague returns to extinction once again before it wreaks havoc on our country, just like it did in biblical times…
