Plague

35.00

A very cool, very popular tie for a very serious pathogen. Yersinia pestis is credited with killing up to two-thirds of the population of major European cities during the 14th century pandemic. Plague, often referred to as the "Black Death" is a bacterial disease transmitted by fleas, from rats to humans. It survives yet today as a potential killer. Prevention centers on improved sanitary conditions and the eradication of rodent reservoirs.
