There is a theory that if the human population grows so large and so destructive that it endangers the eco-system, a disease will arise to cut us all down to size.
It’s the planet’s natural way of regulating itself, the theory claims.
Covid-19 was said to fit that theory. It sprang up in China, a nation that is widely known to be practising methods of controlling the size of its population.
Well, it seems the eco-system has decided that Covid-19 hasn’t done the job, if the latest reports from Inner Mongolia (not China’s next-door neighbour, but an “autonomous” province of China) are accurate, because guess what they say is coming next?
Bubonic plague – otherwise known as the Black Death:
A city … has sounded an alert after a suspected case of bubonic plague was registered by officials.
The case was reported on Saturday by a hospital in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of Bayannur. The northern city announced a ‘level III warning of plague prevention and control’.
The local health authority announced that the warning period will continue until the end of 2020.
According to the World Health Organization, the Bubonic plague – a bacterial disease that is spread by fleas living on wild rodents – can kill an adult in under 24 hours.
This Writer would tell you not to be too worried yet – there was a case of Bubonic Plague in Mongolia last year.
But look how successful Covid-19 has been.
And the Mirror – among others – has reported the appearance of a new strain of Swine Flu, highly-adapted to infect human beings, against which current flu vaccines do not appear to protect.
I would suggest it is good that the UK and so many other countries are already locked down against Covid-19 – but of course Boris Johnson has decreed that we should start mixing with each other again, in his ignorance and hubris.
If I were you, I’d keep a close eye on developments in the Far East, and keep well away from anyone who has been there recently.

It didn’t “spring up in China” it is not known where the virus originated.
Old bill has spoken about culling the stock and why has he bought a ebloa lab in Africa hmmm
Like Tuberculosis, it can easily be treated with inexpensive anti-biotics (I know from experience) so unlike Covid there is a cure – as long as it’s caught in time.
(Suppose I should add it’s TB I have had experience of in South Africa)
I would like to point out that Bubonic plague has regular outbreaks often in the USA.
The Mirror is scare mongering.
There was a report on BBC Radio 4 that covid 19 was present in sewage samples in Spain in March 2019, and in other samples worldwide, months before the virus was recognised as so deadly, in China.
It would be a hundred year irony if the post WW1 “Spanish flu” (long recognised as originating in China) was now the new appellation for covid19.
as if we dont have enough to worry about
Not the best article I’ve ever read on Vox. Please note that the People’s Republic of Mongolia (aka “Mongolia”) is an independent country. Inner Mongolia is an “autonomous province” of the People’s Republic of China (aka “China”). The bubonic plague case was in Inner Mongolia. This is important because Mongolia has been stonkingly successful in controlling Covid – much more successful than China.
Oh, and please stop saying “Far East”. From whose perspective is it east? It’s just unnecessarily Eurocentric. East Asia is a more usefully descriptive term that doesn’t depend on where you’re standing.
But I’m standing in the UK. From here, these places are the Far East. They’ve been known as the Far East for centuries! From what perspective are you saying they shouldn’t be called that?
Thanks for the other geographical information, on which I have acted. The accounts I read were not entirely clear about this and I am glad you clarified.
