The Bubonic Plague during the 1300s is of the deadliest outbreaks of diseases in history.
Beginning is China, it spread rapidly throughout all of Europe and Asia by fleas on rats and other animals.
It causes flu like symptoms. It also attacks the lymph nodes so it travels throughout the entire body within only a few days.
The only reason it stopped its deadly conquest was due to better living conditions and modern medicine was being invented.
People knew they had become infected when large black welts appeared on their skin as well as becoming symptomatic.
This outbreak lasted from the 1300s to well into the 1600s. Its deadliest point was during the late 1300s to early 1400s. It effectively killed over one third of europe's population alone.
If it were not for the advances in medicine and in living conditions, this deadly plague would still be running rampant today. It is by far one of the worlds deadliest diseases to ever strike.
