    ALL major cities have rats, and while the rats do carry it, it also spreads quickly person to person.

    So while it might start among rats in Madagascar, shipping rats can carry it pretty much throughout the globe via their major city trade routes.


    Ever play Pandemic!?

    Madagascar is always the last place left, but this one is STARTING THERE!

    OMG!

    lol

    I am talking about Holy Scripture canon books, not all 'scripture' as much of it was never canon nor widely agreed to as legit.

    Valid, and true...all cities DO have rats. However not all cultures are equal. This plague was not identified initially in Antananarivo. It was identified in an area which is much more rural, in the 1990's.
    Two to three years ago the problem spread to the capital. Unfortunately, they have done nothing about it.
    You see, there is a difference between cultures which can identify an issue and work towards fixing it, and those which continue down the path of the filthy. Madagascar is filthy and they will continue to be.

    Article from 2014
    "The plague is not new to Madagascar. The disease re-emerged in the country in the 1990s. And now Madagascar reports more cases than any other country — about 300 to 600 each year."

    BTW I love Pandemic!
