Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Black Death (disambiguation) By Will Dingeldei and Alex Bedier For year rats have been blamed for spreading the Black Death, helping to consign millions of people to an agonising death.But, an archaeologist said the rodents are innocent. Instead, the blame for contaminating of others that wiped out a third of the population of Europe could be blamed for the victims themselves.The Black Death is widely thought to have been an outbreak of bubonic plague caused by bacteria carried by fleas that lived on black rats. The rodents spread the plague from China to Europe and it hit Britain in 1348. Deaths Info The Black Death spread throughout the body very fast. It would start out like the common cold, giving the victim a fever. The groin and the armpits would be the site of severe swelling, along with other parts of the body. It was not uncommon for a person to have very bloodshot eyes, blood noses and in many instances the victim vomitted blood. The victim would also have several red spots all over there body, which eventually turns into huge black gashes. It generally only required 6-10 days for the person to die after receiving the disease.The Black Death is very severe and dangerous. It has a fatality rate of approximately 80% for the people who catch the disease.The infection takes threefive days to incubate in people before they fall ill and another threefive days before the victims die. People who catch the disease have to go through immense pain for the duration that they have the disease.The Black Death has affected Europe the most, during 1347 to 1352 it has wiped out approximately 60% of the population which equates to 50 million people. Almost 1/3 of the population has been wiped out with estimations of 100 million to 200 million dead worldwide from this disease alone. The Black Death is generally spread from human to human by touch and airborne. It also is spread by rodents and fleas which are carrying the disease and when they bite or are handled by humans the disease is transmitted. So to avoid receiving the disease it is best to stay a considerably amount away from people and to kill all rodents. You should also avoid other animals such as dogs and cats.To cure the disease you could try and cut open the swollen buboes and drain the fluid or you could make small incisions to drain blood from the body in and attempt to get rid of the disease. You could tie a live chicken to your swollen buboes in an attempt to rid the body of disease, these are just some of the many peculiar treatments you could attempt. The people living in Europe had the highest chance of getting infected due to it broke out in China and went to Europe and didn't spread out of Europe. Many accounts of the plague are often varied or imprecise. The most commonly noted symptom was the appearance of buboes (or gavocciolos) in the groin, the neck and armpits, which oozed pus and bled when opened.
