PHUKET: Authorities in Phuket are on the watch for another deadly medical condition – bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death – after news came of an outbreak that has killed 47 people in four months in Madagascar, the large island off the east coast of southern Africa. However, health officials stress that there is no cause for alarm. The Chief of the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office (PHO), Dr Kajornsak Kaewjarat, told The Phuket News, “The Health Department has not informed us directly about this yet, but we are aware of it. The Black Death is very rare, and has not been found in Thailand in many years.” The most recent severe epidemic in Thailand was in 1913, according the Thai Department of Medical Sciences website. In that outbreak in Thonburi, some 300 people died. Since then, the disease has been detected only once, in 1952, when one person died. But between 1346 and 1353 the disease killed somewhere between 75 and 200 million people in Europe, causing profound economic and social upheaval. Modern antibiotics, however, are highly effective, with the death rate being around one per cent, compared with 60 per cent among those left untreated. Dr Kajornsak said, “Our job help people undestand about the Black Death. We are also keeping an eye out for people coming from high-risk countries. I am certain there is no need to worry The National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT) reported that the Ministry of Public Health “has ordered officials in provinces with international ports to sterilise all ships anchoring in Thai ports and get rid of rats on board.” The plague is contracted through being bitten by infected fleas carried by rats. “Residents in maritime areas have also been urged to keep their houses clean and to stick to the correct methods of waste disposal,” NNT reported. Meanwhile, the PHO has revealed that four people from Ebola hotspots visiting the island are being monitored by its staff. Arriya Panchaipoom, Disease Control Specialist with the PHD, told The Phuket News, “There is one each from Congo and Liberia, and two from Nigeria. They are not sick and show no flu-like symptoms. We still keep to monitor their health until the [Ebola] incubation period of 21 days expires. They are all on holiday here.” Phuket recently opened southern Thailand’s first Designated Receiving Area for serious diseases such as Ebola, dengue fever, malaria and plague.
