Madagascar plague death toll hits 195 as outbreak reaches 'crisis' point

Madagascar plague death toll hits 195 as outbreak reaches 'crisis' point | 23 Nov 2017 | The death toll from plague in Madagascar has risen to 195 as experts warn the outbreak of the disease has reached crisis point. A total of 2,267 people have now been infected by the illness since the outbreak began in August, according to the World Health Organisation - a jump of three per cent in recent days. The current spread of the disease is unusual in that most of those affected have had the pneumonic form of plague, which affects the lungs and can kill within 24 hours. It can be transmitted through the air via coughing and sneezing and so spreads easily.
