Back to the Middle Ages we go.
Bolivia is now fumigating to fight back the plague of locusts that hits the country since January 2017.
Researchers from The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston have developed new potential vaccines that protect animals against the bacteria that causes the deadly plague.
The Great Plague in London marks its 350th anniversary with the discovery of a mass grave of plague victims.
The plague, also known as Black Death, may have persisted for as long as 300 years in Europe. Scientists have taken a closer look at the bacteria that causes the sickness, Yersinia pestis, and have found it may have persisted in a previously unknown reservoir.
Scientists may have found the hotspots for the plague in the western United States.
No. You didn't time-travel back to medieval times.
In a recent study, reseachers found that human populations were affected by plague twice as early as thought, ancient DNA reveals new information.
A flea that's been frozen in time may possess bacteria that's the ancestor of the Black Death. Scientists have discovered a flea preserved in amber with tiny bacteria that could have eventually evolved into the dreaded strain of the bubonic plague.
New findings published in the Journal of Medical Entomology reveal that since the1920s, rats in New York City were found to carry a flea species that's actually capable of transmitting plague pathogens.
In 1347 AD, the Black Death swept across Europe, sickening and then killing 40 to 60 percent of the population within just a few short years. Now, scientists have found that the rat may not have been the plague carrier for this disease. Instead, we might have to place the blame on the gerbil.
