Chinese City Quarantined for Bubonic Plague

Parts of a northern Chinese city have been quarantined after state media said a man there died of bubonic plague.

China’s official Xinhua News Agency said Tuesday that 151 people were under observation in the city of Yumen in Gansu province after authorities determined they had come in contact with a man who died of the plague July 16.
