Please tell me something about disease called plauge. I’ve read that millions of people died from this disease in middle ages. What causes this disease? Is it possible for one to get this disease nowadays? Thanks in advance.

The differences between severity of illnesses in middle age and in 21st century are modern antibiotics. One that was affected with plague can be successfully treated with antibiotics. Bacterium called yersinia pestis is causal agent of plague. This disease affects humans and animals, and is transmitted by bite of rodent flea. I’ve read in an article made by WHO that there are about 1-3 thousand cases of plague.
