    Pneumonic plague in China

    I dont know if anyone has posted this yet, I didnt see it. Its really really scary.
    From article:

    A second man has died of pneumonic plague in northwest China, in an outbreak that prompted authorities to lock down a town where about a dozen people were infected with the highly contagious deadly lung disease, a state news agency said.

    TY Amanda. This will need to be followed closely I think, China should have a handle on it hopefully.

    Amanda any updates on how contained this outbreak is so far? I haven't seen any TV news coverage, but then again I have been very busy lately.

    here is an update, I dont think its spreading too quickly because only 3 people have died so far.
