China seals off Village after resident with Bubonic Plague, responsible for the Dreaded Black Death Pandemic, dies

As the world continues to do battle against the deadly Corona virus, a much worse dreaded virus has been announced in China.
This is as a village in inner Mongolia has been sealed off after a resident died from bubonic plague.

The patient, from Suji Xincun village, died of circulatory system failure, the Baotou Municipal Health Commission said in a statement on its website.

The death was reported to health authorities in Baotou city on Sunday and the victim was confirmed to have had bubonic plague on Thursday, it added.

The commission did not mention how the patient caught the plague.

The centuries-old disease was responsible for the most deadly pandemic in human history — the Black Death pandemic in the Middle Ages.

Authorities in China sealed off Suji Xincun village and ordered daily disinfection of homes to curb its spread.

All villagers have so far tested negative for the disease, the statement said.

Nine close contacts and 26 secondary contacts of the patient have been quarantined and tested negative.
