Rats carried fleas which had the yersinia pestis bacterium, which was then transferred to humans. This caused the plague
If you had the pneumonic plague, which affects the lungs, you would start coughing. The pneumonic plague would kill in 4-7 days.
Days 1 and 2: Victims would experience painful swellings and they would vomit and get a fever
People would fear anyone who showed signs of the plague
Day 3: Bleeding under skin cause dark blotches over the body
Day 4: Plague attacks nervous system so the victim suffered painful spasms.
Day 5: If the buboes (swellings) burst, the victim would most likely live. If not, the victim would die and pass on the plague to anyone nearby.
