Hysterical Western Press Fact-Check: Bubonic Plague Outbreak in China ‘Not High Risk’ Says WHO

As yet another round of Sinophobic and hysterical anti-Chinese propaganda hits the western press, this time concerning an outbreak of bubonic plague which broke out in Chinese Inner Mongolia, WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris has assured the public that the organisation does not consider the case a high risk during a teleconference in Geneva on Tuesday.

A man from the area is in a stable condition in a hospital in Bayannur after being confirmed to be the carrier of the disease that was once the scourge of the planet.

“We are monitoring the outbreaks in China and we are watching that closely, in partnership with the Chinese authorities and the Mongolian authorities. At the moment, we are not considering it high risk but we’re watching it, monitoring it carefully,” stated WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris.

Globally between 2010 and 2015, there were 3248 documented cases of bubonic plague including cases in the United States. Yet only this one from China seems to have got such a prominent mention in the news.
