Three more plague cases were found in Colorado, a week after the first infection of the deadliest form of the disease was reported in the state in a decade.

The man initially reported with pneumonic plague on July 11 is hospitalized. Two of the new cases also had pneumonic plague, while the third had a milder form. All four cases may be linked to the original man’s dog, which died from the illness, state health officials said.

Deadly disease? Four people were affected, none of them died and were treated with common antibiotics; all are recovering.
Why all the drama?

What are we going to do when modern medicine runs out of miracle cures that people died from 50 years ago? Become atheists or worse?
