Children hospital in Denver has confirmed that a young girl, showing significant improvement in her conditions, has been discharged from the hospital on Monday afternoon.
Sierra Jane Downing, the seven year old from Pagosa Springs, was reported to be suffering from bubonic plague. She was admitted in the emergency ward in Pagosa Springslate on August 24, after her father found her suffering from high fever, 1070 and has experienced an attack.
Darcy Downing said, “Her daughter may have been infected by insects near a dead squirrel that Sierra Jane wanted to bury while the family was camping in southwest Colorado”.
However, she has to be airlifted to Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, where doctors identified her to be affected by bubonic plague. After 2006, this has been the first case of the disease, which has affected a human in Colorado. However, with the help of the antibiotic treatment and proper care, the girl was declared to be recovering.
The question, which arises, is that can this disease be transmitted. Findings in USA Today suggest that although, the disease cannot be caught, like in case of flu, it can be contracted by humans, if they are bit by fleas, who earlier fed on an infected animal.
