Plagues are serious, infectious and often fatal diseases which occur suddenly and spread quickly. Plagues have been responsible for some of the most devastating outbreaks of diseases throughout all of human history. Traditionally, plagues were caused by contagious bacterial or viral infections, but modern day plagues may be caused by a variety of factors including chemical or biological agents, or even climatic conditions. Plagues are a major concern for public health and can cause great panic and societal disruption. Prevention and early detection are the key to controlling potential epidemics, and healthcare workers rely on a variety of tools, including surveillance systems, lab testing, and treatments, to help manage and contain outbreaks.
