The Black Plague was the biggest epidemic in Medieval Europe as many people died in several days and there was no cure. The disease was contagious which meant family members could spread the disease to other members even after death
The death of the black plague was caused by the spread of viruses in rats that spread to people because of bad hygiene
Many nobles were also affected as they no longer had any heirs for their bloodlines.
It is believed that the disease may have spread from the ports of Kaffa when infected people ran away from home
There were also reports of dead Chinese people due to the pestilence
It is also believed that the Mongolian threw carcasses, meaning that the Black Plague started with rotten meat
