    Plague outbreak in China

    A second man has died of pneumonic plague in a remote part of north-western China where thousands of people have been quarantined.
    The victim was identified by Chinese state media as a neighbour of the first victim, a herdsman aged 32 in Ziketan, near Xinghai in Qinghai Province.



    Health officials in Qinghai have been concerned about pneumonic plague for some time.
    In Febuary, they said they had sent out 55 teams across the province to help monitor and control the disease.
    One Chinese media report said this was the third outbreak of the disease in Qinghai within the last 10 years.
    According to the World Health Organization, pneumonic plague is the most virulent and least common form of plague.
    Untreated, it has a very high case-fatality ratio, the WHO says.
    The WHO was informed on Saturday of the outbreak but has not been asked for help.

    Obviously all part of the Bilderberg/Illuminati/ZOG depopulation programme.

    Surely all travelers from China should be locked in a dungeon like hotel for a week to ensure they're not carrying this deadly disease.

    A third man has died of pneumonic plague in north-western China where a town of more than 10,000 people has been sealed off, officials say.
    The 64-year-old man was a neighbour of the first two people to die from the plague in Ziketan in Qinghai Province.
    Police have set up checkpoints around Ziketan, as medics are disinfecting the area and killing rats and insects.

    On the original point, This is very scary and I agree China has a terrible record of containment...they probably blame the imperialists

    A very nasty piece of business this one. If this gets out will make swine flu and SARS look like a mild cold. Upside is, if treated early with antibiotics lethality is greatly reduced.

    Trouble with the plague is it kills the host so quickly it has trouble migrating.
    Oh well, 3 down 1,399,000,997 to go

    2 out of over a billion? From Wiki:

    Epidemiology

    Since 2001, the World Health Organization (WHO) has reported six plague outbreaks, though some may go unreported because they often happen in remote areas. Between 1998 and 2008, nearly 24,000 cases have been reported, including about 2,000 deaths, in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Eastern Europe.[1] The vast majority of the world's cases (98%) are in Africa.[1]
    *yawn*

    More media fearmongering in the slow summer season. The old chestnut next up: shark attacks.
