THE BUBONIC PLEGUE

DANGER

How Its Spreading

Well first things first you might be thinking well how did the plague get here in the first place? The plague traveled here from rats coming off ships at our dock coming from other places like Europe. When the rats got here they where the ones carrying around that disease now add the fact that our cities are a huge mess with everyone throwing trash out on the streets. There is no sanitation and that lets rats be happy and free and they spread it to other animals outdoors with them. By the time you figure it out your hugging your dogs/cats and they pass it onto you. Now its spread to you and you spread it to others by making face to face contact,breathing the same air, and not being sanitary. Now you know how you could catch the plague.
