There is a horrifying Pneumonic Plague happening right now in Madagascar! “The World Health Organization has announced the death toll has reached 171 in the country and another 2,119 are infected…..’If a person dies of pneumonic plague (600 a year on average) and is then interred in a tomb that is subsequently opened for a Famadihana, the bacteria can still be transmitted and contaminate whoever handles the body,” The Famadihana ritual (of re-shrouding the body…uuum bones) occurs during plague season too! That these infected people are afraid of hospitals and fleeing before getting treated is unfathomable but …here’s a thought….. so to do we keep burning fossil fuels at the warming plague peril of this planet…. humans are wired to self exterminate? Maybe I should restate that we elect leaders and allow corporations to do this for us.
