China In Quarantine For The Plague!

cn

In China, an outbreak of pneumonic plague had caused authorities to lock down a town where about a dozen people are infected with the highly contagious disease. The World Health Organization has been in close contact with Chinese health officials and that measures taken so far to treat and quarantine are appropriate. Pneumonic Plague is spread through the air and can be passed from person to person through coughing. It is caused by the same bacteria that occurs in bubonic plague.
