Peru Suffers Outbreak of the Plague

One child has died and 31 others have been infected in Peru's worst outbreak of the plague since 1994. Peru's health minister said most of the infections are Bubonic Plague, which is caused by fleas, while four are pneumonic plague, an airborne contagion. Thirty-five people died from the plague in Peru in 1994. While treatable if caught early, the affected area is not far from the popular tourist spot, Chicama Beach.
