The World Health Organization has warned that a new epidemic of the Black Death could see millions of people die from the plague in Africa.

The WHO, which has been working alongside Madagascar’s Ministry of Health, found that 231 people have already been infected with the plague.

Express.co.uk reports: A WHO official said: “The risk of the disease spreading is high at national level… because it is present in several towns and this is just the start of the outbreak.”

Dr Charlotte Ndiaye, a WHO Representative in Madagascar, said: “Plague is curable if detected in time.
