Chinese health authorities on Thursday reported a fresh case of bubonic plague in the country's northern Inner Mongolia region, bringing the total number of cases to four since the beginning of the month.
A rural herder in Siziwang county was diagnosed with the disease in a local hospital, according to a statement released by the Inner Mongolian health commission.
Prior to the diagnosis the herder had been active in an area where plague sources had been identified, it said.
The person is in a stable condition after treatment at a local hospital and four other people have been quarantined.
The bubonic plague, known as "Black Death" in the Middle Ages, is a highly-infectious and often fatal disease that is spread mostly by rodents.
