Slightly worrisome. Pneumonic plague is MUCH worse than Bubonic Plague.
Pneumonic plague symptoms appear suddenly, typically 2 - 3 days after exposure. They include:
Frothy, bloody sputum
If treatment is not received within 24 hours of when the first symptoms occur, death may be unavoidable.
Antibiotics such as doxycycline, or ciprofloxacin are used to treat plague. Oxygen, iv fluids, and respiratory support usually are also needed.
