Did anyone here mention the outbreak of the Black Death (aka bubonic plague) in Mongolia?

"Urgent checks have been carried out on 146 people after two brothers reportedly contracted deadly bubonic plague. However there are some 500 who these contacts have been in touch with, say reports."

"Pansoch Buyainbat, 27, and his brother, 17, are being treated in separate hospitals in Khovd province in western Mongolia.
The older brother is said to be in a “critical” condition. Major security precautions have been put into operation amid fears of a spread.
The plague is spread by fleas living on wild rodents such as marmots."

So who had a outbreak of the Black Death on the doom bingo cards? 2020.... the year that'll be hard to forget.
