  • During the year of 1348, the middle ages, a horrible disease called the bubonic plague spread to Europe from China
  • The infection originally only infected rodents, but the infection soon spread to fleas and insects. Which traveled on the rats. 
  • These fleas and insects then infected humans by biting them. 
  • The plague looked like many large black welts or lumps in the person’s flesh. It’s very painful and kills quickly, mainly because doctors would not see patients for fear of catching it.
  • The Black Plague is responsible for the death of approximately 25 million people from 1347 to 1352. 
  • The main reason the plague spread so quickly was because of the uncleanliness of the people. People would not wash their hands, or sometimes their bodies.
