Two patients in China were diagnosed with plague, the deadly and infectious disease tied to historic pandemics, local media reported.

The two people, from Inner Mongolia, were treated for pneumonic plague in Beijing's Chaoyang district, local health officials said Tuesday, according to Caixin and state-media Xinhua.

The news outlets reported the patients received "proper treatment," and disease control measures and prevention methods have been taken.

According to Caixin, the patients were treated at Chaoyang Hospital, which has since replaced all chairs in its emergency room.

The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention said the patients were quickly isolated and health officials investigated everyone who could have been exposed to them, The New York Times reported. Chinese health officials also called the risk for further infections "extremely low."


well if a police state can't control an infection who can?
lots of wild areas in Western China, maybe like the Western USA.

anyone else heard anything lately? black plague very very bad.

There are an average of 1-17 cases of bubonic plague every year just in the US alone.
I don't think anyone needs to worry.
Fear the quick moving lethal virus we don't know yet.

Two people in China? That's nearly 0.00000000001 percent of the population!

Plague originated there. It's endemic to the region, so you always get a few cases cropping up. It lives in the rodents and fleas of the region.

It's also endemic to the western and southwestern US states. It live in prairie dogs the same way it lives in the rodents of the region mentioned in the article you referenced. We almost always have a handful of cases that crop up in the US on a yearly basis too in both dogs and people.

If diagnosed properly, it's easily treated with antibiotics.

Where you have to worry is if it gets into the rat populations of cities with large homeless populations that are already experiencing a resurgence of rat/flea carried disease. It wouldn't re-create the black death, but it would cause an outbreak I think.

Or could it be that the population control mechanism has been activated?

That would explain why they are so, let's say restrictive of their population control, in that area. You wouldn't want that getting out.

Which is usually the start of every great plague, ever.

Meh. When I was stationed in Colorado Springs we got a few. We get a few every year. Seriously, with modern antibiotics it’s a non issue. Plague is largely a thing of the past. Now, Lyme?! That’s what we should be paying attention to. Military enhanced slow acting superbugs. Bad sht.

What time zone are you from? That sounds like a good time zone.

True. If you have enough.
False. If not.
