Default Return of the Bubonic Plague?

Reports that there is a case of the bubonic plague in China. Just when you thought it couldn't get worse. Huge if true.

The bubonic plague was never gone. When I travelled to Mongolia about ten years ago, I learned that it was still a thing there.

If you read the article, it's not actually a "return". They had cases last November and 26 cases since 2009.

So might just be normal for 1-2 cases a year to happen.

In our changing times, we need a disciplinary review panel for headline writers. We worry about “fake news” and these people are some of the worst in the industry.

Came to write this,

But if we do want bad news, I did hear the economist last week say something about a particularly bad swine flu H1N1 coming up this year (I think it was India). I tend to think that current measure against Covid would make it hard for a swine flu to get a good enough foot hold to really spread this year, but not great.
