China releases bubonic plague warning in Inner Mongolia


After reporting a suspected case of bubonic plague, authorities in a city in the Chinese region of Inner Mongolia issued warning against the plague. 

According to Reuters, the health committee of the city of Bayan Nur issued the third-level alert, the second-lowest in a four-level system. 

The latest alert now prohibits the hunting and eating of animals that can carry plague and asks the public to report any suspected cases of plague or fever with no clear causes and to report any sick or dead marmots. 

The issued warning follows four reported cases of plague in people in the area last November, including two of pneumonic plague, a deadlier variant of plague.
