Bubonic Plague Spreading Through Madagascar

Prophecy Sign:  Pestilence, plagues and disease 

Does it seem like there are more and more disease outbreaks these days? From the Bubonic Plague to Malaria, from Ebola to Dengue Fever, with many other disease being reported from all over the world.  Prophecy says it will get worse.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV 

Bubonic Plague Spreading Through Madagascar
A bubonic plague outbreak in Madagascar that has seen more than 130 confirmed cases and claimed 47 lives is spreading to the island nation's capital, officials have warned. Two people in the capital city of Antananarivo have been infected and one of them is not expected to survive, officials announced as health workers initiated a pest control operation in slum areas surrounding the city. Fleas carrying the plague mostly affect rats, but the bite from a disease-carrying flea can infect people. In the bubonic form of plague, where there are swellings known as buboes in the lymph nodes, the disease is susceptible to treatment with antibiotics; however, in the pneumonic form of the disease, which affects the lungs, the disease can be communicated from one person to another through coughing.

The Bubonic plague in Madagascar has infected more than 100 people, and it could keep spreading

Drug-Resistant Malaria Is 'Disaster in the Making,' Expert Warns
Professor Francois Nosten ran his finger over a map showing clusters of tiny dots — each marking a border village that make up ground zero for what experts fear will become the next global health emergency. "It's already a disaster in the making, and as physicians we have to raise the alarm," he said. "We have to do something." Nosten is the director of the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit, a sprawling hive of scientific activity on the Thai-Myanmar border that has become the front line in the fight against drug-resistant malaria. "We should have declared a global emergency once we understood that the parasite had changed its genome and become resistant to the latest drugs we have," he said.

Death toll from Ebola outbreak nears 7,000 in West Africa: WHO
The death toll from the worst Ebola outbreak on record has reached nearly 7,000 in West Africa, the World Health Organization said on Saturday. The toll of 6,928 dead showed a leap of just over 1,200 since the WHO released its previous report on Wednesday. The U.N. health agency did not provide any explanation for the abrupt increase, but the figures, published on its website, appeared to include previously unreported deaths.
