'Black Death Plague': New Chinese disease can potentially kill humans in 24 hours, 2 cases reported
New Delhi : And when people started to accept coronavirus as the part of their new changed social lifestyle, China came up with another disease more deadly, devastating if it gets transmitted like the COVID-19 infection.
According to a new report, a city in Northern China sounded an alert after a suspected case of bubonic plague was reported. A level 3 warning of plague prevention and control came out of Bayannur, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. The suspected case was reported by a hospital in Bayannur.
The warning will stay till the end of 2020 as the authorities have confirmed the cases and are skeptical over the fact that it may have been getting transferred among humans in the city. This, by the way, wasn't the first suspected case of this newly reported plague.
Earlier this month, two men were reported infected with the plague. The two were brothers and were getting treatment in different hospitals. It has been noted that both of them had eaten marmot meat. Marmot, for those of you who don't know, is a type of rodent.
According to a news report all 146 people who had allegedly come in their contact have been isolated and are getting treatment according to their symptoms.
Bubonic plague is a bacterial disease that is spread by flies living on wild rodents such as marmots. It can kill an adult in less than 24 hours if not treated in time.
