靠抗生素囉... 因為這是細菌感染. 可是不及早治療的話, 死亡機率很高.
There is vaccination, but its effectiveness is still questionable. Public sanitation is important in prevetion of the disease, as it is caused by infected flea and rodent bites. The disease can also be transmitted from person to person.

******* 有關預防部分 <Prevention>
Plague will probably continue to exist in its many localized geographic areas in the southwest since attempts to eliminate wild rodent plague are impractical and futile. Therefore, primary preventive measures are directed toward reducing the threat of infection in humans in high risk areas through three techniques:
Public health education
Preventive drug therapy
Preventing epidemic plague requires the reducing or eliminating house rat populations in both urban and rural areas.
******* 有治療部分 Antibiotics may be taken in the event of exposure to the bites of wild rodent fleas during an outbreak or to the tissues or fluids of a plague-infected animal. Preventive therapy is also recommended in the event of close exposure to another person or to a pet animal with suspected plague pneumonia. For preventive drug therapy, the preferred antibiotics are the tetracyclines, chloramphenicol, or one of the effective sulfonamides.
