Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Meet my friend Yersinia pestis.  It emerged roughly 5,700 to 6,000 years ago on the Mongolian plain.  A simple soul, all it wants to do is get into your body, propagate like crazy, and give you Bubonic Plague.

Good old Lentivirus HIV-1 and Lentivirus HIV-2 are stilling killing people - ~600,000 last year - and still considered by WHO to be "one of the world's most serious public health challenges." And no herd immunity.
