Hello and welcome to the Health Hits podcast.

 

This episode is all about Plague. The bacterial infection that caused The Black Death across Medieval Europe, but that continues to cause outbreaks even today.

Yersinia Pestis is a terrifying bacteria. We discover what it is, why it spread so fast, and why it was so deadly.

And with the rise of antibiotic resistance, is there any risk of a future plague pandemic?
