PATIENTS infected with the Black Death plague ravaging Madagascar are escaping from hospital in a city of nearly nine million people, it has emerged.

They risk infecting others as they flee back home – despite being riddled with the dangerous contagion.

A doctor at a plague hospital in the Madagascan capital of Antananarivo revealed the horrifying development yesterday.

This comes as fears grow that the outbreak could go global – leading to millions dying.

The Central Anti-Plague Hospital Ambohimindra is one of six hospitals that treat plague in the city with a population of 8.6m.

Madagascar’s plague outbreak has killed 165 people so far, infecting more than 2,000, making 2017 this hospital’s busiest year.

It’s a deadly pneumonic plague which can pass from person to person through coughing and kills within 24 hours.

But incredibly, Dr Marielle Zaramisy, the hospital’s chief of medicine, has revealed infected patients are fleeing from hospitals and denying themselves potentially life-saving treatment which could speed up the spread.

One patient who managed to get away made it all the way home before doctors forced him back into an ambulance.

And there have been numerous other attempts.

She told the Irish Times: “Some escaped because they’re afraid of needles. People here are not used to the hospital.”

Zaramisy said many of the infected did not believe they had the illness.
