In men and women, the emergence of certain tumors in the groin or the armpits where found, they each grew in different sizes — some of which was the size of a common apple or or even an egg.
Infection cells entering the lungs
The turmours would then turn into black spots or livid which were found many times, generally on the arm or the thigh, sometimes in different areas. These black spots were few and large, then suddenly, minute and numerous.
Symptoms of headache
Coughing or fever
Coughing out blood /bloody sputum
Blood and pus then seeped out of these strange black spots. This was followed by another set of painful symptoms including; fever, chills, vomiting, dihhorea, terrible aches and pains.
If at this stage the person was still untreated, the infection would further spread to the blood or lungs causing it to progress into the pneumonic form of the plague.
Deadly symptoms such as trouble breathing, chest pain, cough, fever, headache, overall weakness and bloody sputum were often found.
Shortly within a few days of the initial discovered symptoms, the person would die.
