The Black Death
DON'T LET THE BLACK RAT TOUCH YOU!
The Black Death was the first historical record of bubonic plague in central Asia in 1338 to 1339. It also reached China and Asia by 1346 infecting lots of people.
The Black Death most likely spread by Oriental rat fleas living on the black rats that were regular passengers on merchant ships, spreading throughout the Mediterranean and Europe. The Black Death was estimated to have killed 30 to 60 percent of Europe's total population.
Am... am I infected?! *cough* *cough*
People who has the disease, the Black Death would have big boil called a "buba," thus the name Bubanic Plague and it could have been as big as a apple. It could have grown in the necks, groin and armpits.
The Black Death was very dangerous and contagious and destroyed 2/3's of Europe's population and it killed people in a strange manner. People who weren't affected went crazy in fear of catching it and the people who caught it usually died within 7 days. In those times doctors were not very advanced and they mostly believed in superstition, so 70% of people who caught it died. It was slow and painful.
The Black Death occured in 1347 AD. The Black death is another name for the plague. It got this name because of the characteristic Black spots and/or "Buboes" that appeared on the body on the armpit after infection (buboes only appeared if the person had Bubonic plague, one of the three forms).
There were different forms of the Black Death, and they were spread in different ways, though they were caused by the same organism.
