Alerta en condado de EE.UU. por ardilla con peste bubónica.

Una ardilla en el estado de Colorado ha dado positivo por peste bubónica, afirman funcionarios de salud pública de los Estados Unidos.

El roedor fue encontrado en Morrison, una ciudad a las afueras de Denver en el condado de Jefferson. Los funcionarios de salud del condado dijeron en un comunicado que la ardilla ha sido el primer caso de peste en el condado.

La peste bubónica es una de las tres formas de enfermedades infecciosas causada por la bacteria Yersinia pestis. Según los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades de EE. UU., la peste bubónica generalmente se contrae después de una picadura de pulga infectada.


Las autoridades de salud del condado de Jefferson dijeron en su declaración que las mascotas domésticas pueden ser susceptibles a infectarse de peste y que podría a su vez transferirse a los humanos por medio de pulgas infectadas.

Los gatos son altamente susceptibles a la peste y pueden morir si no se tratan rápidamente con antibióticos. Los gatos pueden contraer la peste por picaduras de pulgas, arañazos, mordeduras o ingestión de un roedor. Los perros no son tan susceptibles, sin embargo, pueden contraer la enfermedad y portar pulgas de roedores infectados «, dijo el departamento en un comunicado.

Aunque ligada a pandemias históricas como la Peste Negra, las enfermedades relacionadas con la peste todavía ocurren cada año en los Estados Unidos y en todo el mundo, aunque son raras. En los Estados Unidos, la mayoría de los casos de peste ocurren en el suroeste, incluido Nuevo México, Arizona y Colorado.

En la región de Mongolia Interior de China la semana pasada, se confirmó un caso de peste bubónica, lo que provocó que los funcionarios de salud en Bayannur elevaran su nivel de alerta por esta enfermedad

Los antibióticos modernos han reducido significativamente la tasa de mortalidad de esta plaga. Los síntomas de la peste bubónica pueden incluir fiebre, dolor de cabeza, escalofríos, debilidad y ganglios linfáticos inflamados. La bacteria puede propagarse a otras partes del cuerpo si no se trata a tiempo.

Se aconseja evitar animales salvajes, especialmente aquellos que parecen enfermos o muertos. Las mascotas también deben mantenerse a una distancia segura de los animales silvestres, y los propietarios deben consultar a un veterinario si una mascota se enferma.

La peste, una enfermedad causada por una infección bacteriana, no está relacionada con el nuevo coronavirus, que causa el C-19.
