Plague  Lesson 6
 Public Health Issues

Environmental Assessment

This environmental testing will also:

  • Determine whether plague is spreading in animal populations or to new regions.
  • Assess the need for vector and rodent control.
  • Help to recommend and implement control and prevention measures.
  • Determine the need for appropriate follow-up surveillance procedures to evaluate the effectiveness of control measures and verify that the levels of environmentally-associated plague risks have returned to pre-incident levels.
