In an autonomous region of Inner Mongolia in northern China, a patient was hospitalized with suspected bubonic plague.
According to the Xinhua News Agency, the third level of the epidemiological warning was announced in the Khoshun Urad-Zhongqi, in the city of Bayannnaoer. The population is asked to observe safety measures.
Recall, on July 1, Mongolia declared quarantine after it revealed two cases of infection with bubonic plague. Before infection, both infected, a man and a woman, ate raw groundhog meat, which may have become a source of infection. The country's authorities decided to strengthen control on the border with Russia and China.
Earlier, the regional office of Rospotrebnadzor of Russia reported that the outbreak of bubonic plague in Mongolia does not pose a danger to our country, since the disease was registered in the Khovdinsky aimak, which does not border the Altai Republic.
