Black Death comes knocking on our doors

Forget about H1N1 and H5N1 ,now we are having in Egypt even much more dangerous deadly catastrophe knocking on our Western doors : The Plague , the black death that can't be comprised.
Earlier this week reports came from Libya that the plague began to appear and spread in its Eastern cities on our Western borders like Tobruk .
The Libyan authorities have reported that 16-18 cases were infected including one death.
It is interesting or even sadly enough to know that this is not the first time it happens in Libya,it had reported plague before in the past 30 years.
Reports are saying that the sudden outbreak is caused a by leak that happened in one of Libya's biological weapons labs !! The mad man of Libya is playing with germs in his lab !! Did not he say that he won't mess with WMD again !!?? Now his own people are threatened because of him !!! Not only his people I am afraid
The situation in Cairo is not good , we are already dealing with H1N1 and people are scared ,imagine when they read about the black death in Libya on our borders. People are extremely scared in Salloum and Marsa Matrouh.
Thank Goodness both the ministries of health and defense understand the real challenge facing them. According to the official reports the ministry of health in coordination with the army have sent experts to the borders to watch the situation and take the needed precautions to stop any advance for the black death in to our country heaven forbid.  "Hopefully this is true not press talk !!"
The situation does not stop here.
Unfortunately there are about 6000 Egyptian Expat on the borders who are stuck and can't come back to Egypt creating another problem.
Of course according to health procedures it is better that those 6000 return back to Libya for the time being , we can't comprise this time.

Already it is well known that where ever a Plague appears in a city no one should come to it or leave it. Religiously it is an order , Prophet Mohamed 'PBUH' said a quote by the same words regarding this issue. Unfortunately up till now we are depending on a very few news reports coming from Libya and our Western borders.
It is a scary thing because I can't imagine heavens forbid if plague spreads in Egypt in a way or another what will happen and how many people it will kill , just think about rats in the shanty towns ,it is more than scary.

  1. يقول الله تعالى : ظهر الفساد في البر والبحر بما كسبت أيدي الناس ليذيقهم بعض الذى عملوا لعلهم يرجعون

  2. I don't think plague is a huge problem nowdays as it used to be in the past centuries. Viruses as H1N1 are more dangerous. At least plague can be treated by antibiotics.

  3. @Dina , I hope that people understand this

    @anonymous,it is the plague , can you imagine how many souls it will take if it reached to our shanty towns ?? Do you know how bad our hospitals are for God sake ??

    @Ice, exactly on what ??

  4. Have you considered it might simply be punishment from Allah for your sins?

  5. what sins if it has not reached to Egypt thanks to God's mercy up till now !!
    for God sake I believe you should ask the Libyans the same question

  6. i dont think its right for anyone to say this is a punishment to the Libyans for their sins... you could say the same thing about any disease! Also, the plague is not spreading through many eastern cities, I believe various reports have stated that it has been found in a town 30 km from Tobruk... please be careful of the way you word things, because it can be misunderstood!

  7. I'm sorry for my late reply.

    Yes I know how bad is our medical system. I'm a physician.

    Plague was a big threat to humanity and killed millions of souls. But now it's treatable disease by a coarse of cheap Antibiotics as tetracyclines.

    Tha era of pandemics of plague is over. The biggest threat we face today comes from viruses not bacteria
