Coronavirus Rival Emerges: China Reports Cases Of “Black Death” Plague

While the whole world is struggling to defeat the novel coronavirus that managed to change our lives and govern our reality, it seems that other darker dangers are lurking the shadows. 

The world is in the middle of a war with the new virus 

There’s been a lot of talk about the coronavirus mutations potential and now it’s been revealed that a new mutated version of the virus has been confirmed. But the good thing is that it seems that things are not looking as bad as expected.

CNN writes that there’s a global study that managed to find strong evidence that there’s a new form of the coronavirus that has spread from Europe to the US. 

This new mutation is making the virus more likely to infect people but it doesn’t seem to make then any sicker compared to the earlier mutations of the virus, according to expert opinions. Meanwhile, there are some questions arising about the coronavirus vaccine and who gets to have it first. 

Long forgotten danger is lurking in China 

It’s been just revealed that the authorities in a city of China’s Inner Mongolia issued a warning this Sunday – this was a day after a hospital reported a case of suspected bubonic plague. Well, getting the plague back on the menu in 2020 is not quite what the world needs, that’s for sure.

The warning that has been issued on Sunday comes after some reports of cases of plague in people from Inner Mongolia from last November – these included two of the deadlier type pf the plague, the pneumonic plague.
