Authorities in northern Inner Mongolia, an autonomous province of China, stepped up precautions after it was confirmed that a pastor had contracted bubonic plague. There are already more suspected cases in neighboring Mongolia, a 15-year-old teenager.

The man who has already been confirmed to remain in stable condition in a hospital in Bayan Nur, the city health commission said in a statement.

Local authorities issued a level 3 alert, the second lowest in a four-level system. The notice will remain in effect until the end of the year, according to Xinhua.

The other suspicious case involves a 15-year-old teenager and was reported on Monday in Mongolia, the Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported.

The boy had a fever after eating a groundhog that had been hunted by a dog, Xinhua said.

Two other cases were confirmed in Mongolia’s Khovd province last week, involving siblings who ate groundhog meat, the agency added.
