The black plague that is now ravaging parts of Africa might well be on the way to Europe and the United States, according to new reports from the WHO. The black plague’s death toll has risen abruptly now to 165 over just a few days, which has sent shockwaves throughout the scientific community. A community that was already on heightened alert over a plague that seems to have no cure. The plague is now being called Madagascar’s ‘worst outbreak in 50 years.’ With an easy and efficient means of transport via ships and planes and a newly displayed propensity for spreading, the black plague is now considered a deadly global threat.
The commonly referred to ‘bubonic plague’ and ‘medieval plague’ has downed as many as 2,034. With the potential for further and more evolved mutations, the disease may become an untreatable scenario. This could allow the disease to spread much into and beyond Africa’s mainland region. The plague’s ability to infect via airborne saliva means that busses, planes, and ships are ripe to propel the disease much further beyond Africa. Experts are also calling this year’s strain much more lethal than year’s past.
The WHO is vehemently warning Malawi for what may well be a potentially devastating plague event. A professor of health protection at the University of East Anglia, Paul Hunter, told Daily Mail that the plague is possible to enter into the African mainland, where it could erupt into a global catastrophe. Don’t forget to check out my how to survive a modern pandemic guide.
‘The big anxiety is it could spread to mainland Africa, it’s not probable, but certainly possible, that might then be difficult to control.
‘If we don’t carry on doing stuff here, at one point something will happen and it will get out of our control and cause huge devastation all around the world.’
In case you aren’t aware, global travel has become a vastly different beast since the days of medieval jousting competitions. A disease in this day and age is always one or two Expedia deals from becoming a massive global epidemic. A plague can transport undetected for weeks and infiltrate an unsuspecting modern community without much gridlock. Seeing that the first symptoms are merely reflective of an oncoming flu, health officials would almost certainly be late in catching on. And that’s how catastrophic pandemics start, as any good prepper already knows. This incredibly unprecedented outbreak is largely being ignored by mainstream media conglomerates that seem to continue to remain focused on President Trump’s next tweet.
Do you have your pandemic supplies? Do you know the difference between a pandemic vs epidemic? Being a prepper news site, I must mention that there are prepper pandemic precautions which can be taken in the event of a worst-case scenario. I have an entire list of prepper plague precautions listed at the bottom of my last report on this matter (GO HERE). Clean water, via some of these best survival water filter units, would be essential to survival, not only during a pandemic but also during any catastrophe. It is always good to have something on hand that allows you the ability to create clean water.
If you live in Europe or the United States, this is not a warning which should serve to panic you, rather, a warning which should motivate you to take some light and affordable precautions so that if a pandemic strikes and you need to grab your bug out bag and go, you are ready. Pay attention, prepare, but never panic. Being a prepper means never having to panic, that’s the entire point of preparation in general.
