CHINA RECORDS THE THIRD CASE OF DEADLY PLAGUE IN A WEEK




İrem UZUN -TDO- According to the Chinese health authorities, a 55-year-old man has been diagnosed with bubonic plague after killing and eating a wild rabbit in northern China.  A total of 28 people who had close contact with the patient are now isolated and under observation, and the commission said there are no abnormal symptoms found in them.The case is the third reported example of plague in the country over the past week, adding to two plague cases which were discovered in the capital of Beijing.

Bubonic plague is the most common form of plague globally and can advance and spread to the lungs, becoming a more severe type called pneumonic plague, according to the World Health Organization.The disease can be fatal in up to 90 per cent of people infected if they do not receive treatment, which primarily involves taking several types of antibiotics.Although China has largely eradicated plague, occasional cases are still reported, often among hunters who come into contact with fleas that carry the bacterium.The last major known outbreak of the disease was in 2009, when several people died in Qinghai province in northwest China.In those cases, China was accused of initially covering up the outbreak and dragging its feet in cooperating with the World Health Organization, allowing the disease to spread outside of the country.
