Four Cases of Life-Threatening Plague Found in Colorado
Three more plague cases were found in Colorado, a week after the first infection of the deadliest form of the disease was reported in the state in a decade.
The man initially reported with pneumonic plague on July 11 is hospitalized. Two of the new cases also had pneumonic plague, while the third had a milder form. All four cases may be linked to the original manâ€™s dog, which died from the illness, state health officials said.
