The plague appeared in three forms: bubonic, septicemic and pneumonic. These infections were caused by an organism (bacillus) which was present primarily in rats (but occurred in other rodents as well) and could be transmitted by flea bite to humans.

The symptoms of bubonic plague included fever, chills, muscle aches, headache, swollen lymph glands and seizures.
