California: Second person contracts plague after visiting Yosemite National Park

Published August 22, 2015 by godshope1971

Before this year, the last time a human case of plague was reported in the Yosemite Valley was in 1959.

Now, the California Department of Public Health is investigating a second case of plague it believes was contracted by a Georgia native during a recent visit to Yosemite National Park. It comes nearly two weeks after health officials announced a child had contracted it while visiting the park with family in mid-July.
