We would risk our own health to help the people in need that were gravely ill. All of the children and people would die from this plague no matter what.
Many people left the cities for the countryside, but even there they could not escape the disease. It also affected cows, sheep, goats, pigs and chickens as well as people. In fact, so many of the sheep died that there was a European wool shortage.
