Original Message Oregon is rocked by first human case of BUBONIC PLAGUE in nearly a decade after being infected by their pet cat: Officials rush to contain virus
Oregon officials are rushing to contain outbreak of bubonic plague in the state
The unidentified local is believed to have contracted the plague from their cat



Oregon officials are rushing to contain an outbreak of bubonic plague after announcing the state's first case since 2015.

The unidentified resident is believed to have contracted the plague from their symptomatic cat, health officials said on Wednesday.

'All close contacts of the resident and their pet have been contacted and provided medication to prevent illness,' Dr. Richard Fawcett, the Deschutes County health officer said in a statement.

There is little risk to the community as the case was identified and treated in the earlier stages of the disease, Fawcett said.

No additional cases of plague have emerged during the communicable disease investigation, according to officials.
