4/2006 A case of bubonic plague was diagnosed in Los Angeles County. The source of infection was a bite from a flea infected by dead rodents or rats. Bubonic plague is a serious, though non-contagious disease. If the symptoms are not properly identified and treated, the condition can evolve into pneumonic plague, which is airborne and transmits from person to person. Can this happen is San Diego and Riverside County? Without resorting to hysteria, the answer is yes! The best response is prevention.
