Extermination Experts: Rats May Cause Medieval Plagues

There is increasing news about the plague of rats in the Netherlands getting out of hand. Experts say that the population of rats is explosively increasing. 88 Dutchmen fell sick last year both in the Netherlands and abroad with the rat sickness also known as the sickness of Weil.  Before 2014, this illness hardly existed in the Netherlands.  It is spread through rat urine that gets into waterways.  A major government study on the rat plague is underway and will be published early next year.
