Yeah, there are pockets of plague still. According to CDC the major cause of infection is from handling infected prairie dogs (I mean rats). It only really affects the poor (and the ignorant). Apparently antibiotics are very effective but some countries don't have the money. But there is no excuse why there are reported fatalities in the USA.
