Abstract: In spite of the very strict Quarantine Regulations issued by Sir Hilderbrand Oakes, Malta was hit by a very severe Plague Epidemic in May 1813. As pointed out in Part 9, the plague bacillus is found in the rat, and transmitted to man by means of a bite from a flea. This method of transmission was of course unknown in 1813, and so various other precautions were taken. [excerpt]
