<<The Atlas of Plague and Its Environment in the People's Republic of China>>is the first atlas with spatial analysis methods to study on plague distributions, epidemics, controls, foci characters and their relationships with environment in China. This paper briefly introduces the idea, principle and methodology of its design and the main research results from it. The atlas include ten map groups as general maps, environmental background maps, plague epidemic and foci background maps in the… 

Landform and soil analysis for predicting distribution of plague reservoirs and vectors in Mavumo area, Lushoto district, Tanzania

A study was carried out in Mavumo area, West Usambara Mountains, Tanzania, to analyse the importance of landform and soil characteristics in predicting the distribution of plague reservoirs and

The Third Plague Pandemic in Europe

The digitization of international records of notifiable diseases, including plague, has enabled this work to retrace the introductions of the disease to Europe from the earliest reported cases in 1899, to its disappearance in the 1940s.

The global economy affected by the COVID-19

Research background: The disease, which broke out in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan and caused a pandemic around the world, has a constant impact on the economies of the countries even

Plagued by a cryptic clock: insight and issues from the global phylogeny of Yersinia pestis

An updated phylogeny of Y. pestis using 601 genome sequences sampled globally is curate and contextualize, demonstrating that genetic evidence alone is insufficient for accurately reconstructing the timing and spread of short-term plague epidemics.

Yersinia pestis: the Natural History of Plague

Three historic pandemics, starting in 541 AD and continuing until today, have been described and at present, the third pandemic has become largely quiescent, with hundreds of human cases being reported mainly in a few impoverished African countries, where zoonotic plague is mostly transmitted to people by rodent-associated flea bites.

Intraspecific Diversity of Yersinia pestis

The variety of methods used in the FSU to classify Y. pestis strains based on genetic and phenotypic variation are described and show that there is a high level of diversity in these strains not reflected by ones obtained from sylvatic areas and patients in the Americas.

Long-term persistence of virulent Yersinia pestis in soil.

Data indicate that Y. pestis biotype Orientalis can remain viable and fully virulent after 40 weeks in soil, which could represent an alternative mechanism for the maintenance of plague foci.

Yersinia pestis halotolerance illuminates plague reservoirs

Salt tolerance of Y. pestis L-form may play a role in the maintenance of natural plague foci in North Africa and beyond, as these geographical correlations could be extended to 31 plague focuses in the northern hemisphere.


This paper discusses the implications of plasmid variation for virulence, diagnosis, and epidemiologic investigations in Plague Diversity in the Americas, and the impact of diversity on the Interrelationship of Host Immune Factors and Virulence.
