(ConservativeStar.com) – While the world is held in the grip of the coronavirus pandemic that appears to have started in Wuhan, China, another local government in the country initiated an emergency response to a deadly disease. Authorities in Menghai County in Yunnan province raised the alarm after a 3-year-old boy was found to be infected with the bubonic plague.

This follows the discovery of two cases — one fatal — in Chinese Inner Mongolia earlier in 2020. Health authorities locked down Suji Xincun village, the home of the deceased patient, and ordered all residences to be disinfected on a daily basis.
The “black death” is highly susceptible to modern-day antibiotics, which means that although simply hearing the name of it triggers a visceral reaction in most people it will not result in the mass die-offs of the past. What’s troubling, however, is the fact that the Communist nation stonewalled the planet regarding COVID-19 so that nobody can ever be 100% sure of what’s going on there.
