Could the ‘Black Death’ Become a Re-Emerging Infectious Disease?

Could the ‘Black Death’ Become a Re-Emerging Infectious Disease? This is the subject of an editorial for the Journal of Ancient Diseases & Preventive Remedies, written by Tim Sandle.

Here is an extract:

"Populations are still at risk of plague today. This is due to several reasons including transport and trade, and threats in developing countries where multi-drug resistant pathogens are currently emerging and spreading rapidly. These global problems would require responses at various intersecting levels of public health and political authority: global, national, and local."

The short article can be viewed on-line here.
