More 2020 Strangeness as Lake Tahoe Issues Bubonic Plague Warning

Several recreational areas had to be cordoned off for treatment.

When it’s all said and done, our children and/or grandchildren will likely be asking us, perhaps naively, if we lived through 2020:  The year the world tried to end, or whatever nickname they’ll give this incredibly strange snapshot of time.

The confluence of calamity is simply astounding, and truly began right at the start of the year  with a fairly significant World War III scare thanks to Iran.  It was only a few weeks later that the coronavirus crisis reached the rest of the world, emanating outward from Wuhan, China like a sluggish shockwave.

Then, almost hilariously, the United States was invaded by murder hornets.  Shortly thereafter, and not at all hilariously, our nation was thrust into a racial revolution the likes of which we haven’t seen in decades…if ever before.

Oh, and all of this is coming at us while we’re smack dab in the heart of the most contentious and contemptuous election cycle in two or three lifetimes.

So when the bubonic plague starts making a comeback, many Americans sure to scoff and mutter “of course” under their breath.

Fleas tested positive for bubonic plague in parts of South Lake Tahoe prompting federal wildlife officials to close several areas for treatment.

However, the scenic area known for its natural beauty was reopened for Labor Day weekend, KTLA reported.

“People should be on the lookout for unusual things like a rodent acting unusual, or a rodent that is dead with no visual signs of trauma,” Lisa Herron, U.S. Forest Service told KOVR.

The California Department of Health said rodents in the area were carrying infected fleas, KOVR reported.

The bubonic plague is longer the unstoppable scourge that it once was, with modern medicine both effective and widely available to treat suspected cases quickly and efficiently.

But it’s 2020, and we’re not taking any chances.
