@PaulLantos I will look forward to reading it. Have you read Zinsser on Serbian WWl typhus outbreaks in POW camps?
RT @RWPUSA: Most of them are workers not “dreamers.” We want them here. And you’re not getting any of OUR money to pay for a us… https://t.co/77yqceMYJl
@PaulLantos very interested in typhus. I think that it’s probably the cause of the Great Plague of Athens.
@PaulLantos And again, reading the old records show you just how rapidly the BD was transmitted via the respiratory route. Pulex is a nest flea and doesn't jump from person to person. Comes from clothes, linens.
@PaulLantos Pneumonic plague in its BD form was certainly not one of them, any more than it was during the Manchurian plagues in 1910, 1915, 1920 - as the Soviet BW experts well knew.
