R.equest  F.or  I.nformation
         Hi,  my name is Yannis Breit-Hofberg. I'm in the eighth grade 
and doing a science project on the Bubonic  plague. I have studied some 
sources including a college microbiology book which described a lot of 
the symptoms, and two National Geographic articles that included 
information about fleas, rats and antibiotics. I would like to know if 
there are any new strains of the plague. I heard that there might be new 
strains popping up and that they were non-treatable with the current 
antibiotics. Another thing I couldn't find in my resources was mortality 
rates. I would like to make a graph on the most recent death rates so if 
you know any or where to find them it would be much appreciated. I am 
wondering whether there is a way to gopher or ftp to the World Health 
Organization for info or the Center for Disease Control.  Thank you very 
much in advance for reading and responding to my question.
