The spread of' human plague in southern Africa until it reached Rhodesia where it was first diagnosed in September, 1974, is descriptionbed. Because of the ideal conditions for wild plague transmission in the western parts of Rhodesia, plague is now enzootic and further human infections are inevitable. The clinical presentations and treatment of patients is discussed as well as measures necessary to protect the community. A plague surveillance and control programme is in action and a plague laboratory unit has been created in, Bulawayo.
