Scientists warn against deadliest pandemics which caused plague long ago

Researchers warn against a strain of disease which caused over 100million individuals to die to strike once more. They have connected this pathogen to the one responsible for the Black Death, executing 50million Europeans in the 1300s, and The Plague of Justinian, which struck 800 years prior.

Dave Wagner, teacher in the Center for Microbial Genetics and Genomics at Northern Arizona University cautioned that the same strain could make a comeback some time soon.

He stated that they know the bacterium Y. pestis which has bounced from rodents into people all around history and rat repositories of infection still exist today in numerous parts of the planet.

Scientists say that they were created by "different" strains of the same pathogen and it could come back in the present day which is why it is important to stay alert of this deadly strain.

Scientists say that if the Justinian infection could lead to an outbreak in the human populace and cause a monstrous pandemic, and afterward cease to exist, then it could happen once more leading to the same catastrophic loss of life in the present times.
