Did You Say Bubonic?
Submitted by Tiffany on 18 April, 2009 - 09:58
I know a lot of people think that foreign travel is full of nasty hazards, one of which is the risk of disease. I usually take these warnings with a pinch of salt. Until I heard a casual mention about the fact that Mongolia is one of the last places on the planet where people can still catch Bubonic Plague (this definitely comes under the heading of ”Don’t tell my Mum”).
It’s true, apparently the cuddly-looking furry marmots on the plains are harbouring this deadly disease- note to self, do not under any circumstances attempt to cuddle cute little marmots and most definitely no CPR on them if they fall victim to Thelma’s spinning wheels.
But, just in case, does anyone have any idea what the symptoms of Bubonic Plague are??
