    To the Editor:
    Plague is a deadly rodent-associated flea-borne zoonosis caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis (1). Human plague periodically reemerges in so-called plague foci, as illustrated by the 2003 reemergence of human plague in the Oran area, Algeria (2,3). We report emergence of a new plague focus in a remote region of Algeria.
