Plague (Deadly Diseases and Epidemics)
Throughout history, plague killed millions of people before it was finally brought under control by bacteria-killing antibiotics in the 20th century. Although it may seem hard to believe that the plague could possibly be active in the United States today, it actually infects about 10 to 30 Americans each year. Worldwide, the problem is even more serious. Find out how the plague bacterium attacks the body and sometimes causes severe physical harm and even death. Learn about the dangers the plague still poses both to people who become infected and as a potential weapon for bioterrorists. Book jacket.
