We live in a time where not much comes as a shock anymore.
For the first time in nearly a decade, a case of the Bubonic Plague has been reported in Oregon.
The unidentified person infected is said to have contracted the disease from their symptomatic pet cat.
Deschutes County health officer Dr. Richard Fawcett said that there is little chance that the plague will spread through the community, as the person infected was treated during the early stages of the disease.
“All close contacts of the resident and their pet have been contacted and provided medication to prevent illness,” claimed Dr. Fawcett.
The last confirmed case of the plague in Oregon occurred back in 2015.
