The bubonic plague pandemic of the 1890s originated in south-central China and spread through the rest of Asia and around the world along accelerated trade routes. Using the new science of bacteriology, Kitasato and Yersin identified the pestis bacillus in Hong Kong. In Honolulu, a rapidly growing center of world trade, public health officials implemented policies designed to prevent the entry of plague.
