Chinese authorities stepped up precautions after an Inner Mongolian city, Bayan Nur, confirmed a case of bubonic plague.

Based on the Xinhua news agency report, the case was discovered in Bayannur, a city located northwest of Beijing, last Saturday, July 4, when a hospital alerted the municipal authorities.

American hospitals running out ICU beds
That is good advice, but they might not have an ICU bed for you when you arrive even if hospitals are secure. Meanwhile, when NY reached its peak of over 12,000 cases in April, over 800 deaths were reported daily.


An apparent outbreak of bubonic plague in China is being "well managed" and is not considered to represent a high risk, a World Health Organization (WHO) official said on Tuesday.

The Black Death caused about 50 million deaths in Africa, Asia and Europe during the 14th century. Luckily, it can now easily be treated with antibiotics.

In 2017, an outbreak in Madagascar saw more than 300 cases, though a study in medical journal The Lancet found less than 30 people died. It ordered residents in the city of half a million people to stop hunting, skinning or transporting rodents and other animals known to carry plague, to report fevers of unknown causes, and to report sightings of dead marmots.

Untreated bubonic plague can turn into pneumonic plague, which causes rapidly developing pneumonia, after bacteria spreads to the lungs.

Mongolia seems to be a vector for bubonic plague. The disease caused the "Black Death" pandemic over the centuries and is considered one of the deadliest pandemics in modern history. "Bubonic plague is transmitted via the bite of infected fleas, and human to human transmission is very rare".

"Bubonic plague is the most common form and is transmitted between animals and humans through the bite of infected fleas and direct contact with carcases of infected small animals. We are also able to treat patients who are infected with effective antibiotics", Kappagoda added.

What do we know about these latest cases?

It's not clear how he contracted the disease specifically, but in the region, marmots and other rodents are thought to be a source of plague, which they pass on to fleas.

Though bubonic plague is now a treatable disease, citizens fear that if the cases continue to rise, soon there will be an epidemic, which might become uncontrollable in the wake of the existing COVID-19 crisis.
