Plague
CDC

Plague is a disease that is caused by the bacterium, Yersinia pestis. Humans usually get plague after being bitten by a rodent flea that is carrying the plague bacterium or by handling an animal infected with plague. Plague is infamous for killing millions of people in Europe during the Middle Ages.

Today, modern antibiotics are effective in treating plague. Without prompt treatment, the disease can cause serious illness or death.
