Hello friend, my name is Thomas, my friends will explain what was the black plague and how deadly it was in ancient times to be precise in 1347 .... very old right? Well let's start with this, I hope you enjoy.
Origin of "The black death"
The Black Death lasted in Europe from 1347 to 1351. It killed the rich and the poor, the young and the old.
People at the time had no idea what caused the plague. They were afraid and began blaming people they did not understand. Some people thought Jews were causing the plague. Many were killed as a result.
Explanation about "The black death"
I explain, this begins with the fleas of rats, when said flea bit a person, or he suffered a cut in the skin of contaminated materials, the bacillus was transmitted and said disease was suffered.
There were 60 million deaths between Asia and Africa Mateo
High levels of malnutrition and poverty caused by the economic downturn
Norwich, a city in England, had a population of about 70,000 people before the plague. After the Black Death, it had fewer than 13,000 inhabitants. Some people stopped plowing their fields. They stopped caring for their animals.In the years that the disease lasted, it had different effects on the populations, causing deaths to which people had to abandon their daily activities.
With the Black Death there was a loss of approximately 30% of the population of Europe
