Third plague patient in mainland

World | Associated Press 19 Nov 2019

China says a 55-year-old man has been diagnosed with bubonic plague after eating a wild rabbit, adding to two cases discovered in Beijing.

The health authority in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region said that as of Saturday the man from Xilingol League was being treated at a hospital in the city of Huade.

Twenty-eight people who had close contact with the man were quarantined but none has run a fever or shown other plague symptoms, the authority added.

Last week, two patients also from Xilingol League were diagnosed with pneumonic plague in Beijing. No epidemiological association has been found between the two cases.
