Heather Whipps supports this idea in her article, How the Black Death Changed the World, by stating, “The Black Death-as it is commonly called-especially ravaged Europe, which was halfway through a century already marked by war, famine and scandal in the church…” (Whipps 1-2). The war had already weakened Europe financially, causing them to have a lack of resources. Due to these factors, people started moving from the countryside to city-side to better get those resources. Since cities were so condensed, it was easier for germs to spread, especially an airborne disease like the plague. Whipps continues, “Densely populated Europe, which had seen a recent growth in the population of its cities, was a tinderbox for the disease” (2).
The plague occured in the United States in 1900(“Plague”1). In the United States Bubonic formed all over the country and people were scared and confused There were rats that sneak onto the steamboats and get people affected. New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, California, Oregon, and Nevada are impacted today by the plague(“CDC”). The plague occurs in the wild. If untreated, people still can die from the plague, which in the United States occurs in the wild(“Plague Occurs”).
Black death VS Swine flu (H1N1) Black death and Swine flu were similar.The Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics (disease) in human history, resulting in the deaths of one 3rd population of Europe in the years 1346–53. Both of diseases are spread by animals. Both diseases kills a huge amount of people and Both diseases change the society by killing their people. The Black Death is originated in Central Asia, where it then travelled along the Silk road. It was most likely carried by Oriental the black rats.Black Death, now known as the plague, is spread by a bacillus (bacteria) called (Yersinia pestis).A French biologist Alexandre Yersin discovered this Bacterial cell in 19th century.From the research of Alexandre Emile Jean
The Black Death The Black Death, also known as the Bubonic Plague, was one of the biggest pandemics in the world. It started to spread from Eastern China, to Europe in the early 1300’s, and it reoccurred multiple times during the years to come. Merchant ships and rodents were the two main ways this disease spread and infected humans (The Black Death 1348). The symptoms for this plague were extremely painful and death was the most likely outcome in most cases. Over 50 million people died.
The Black Death spread so quickly overpopulation of cities. The Black Death impacted the economic and social balance of several monarchies. First, the people of Europe flogged themselves to renounce their sins and to achieve holiness. Secondly, the people disregarded the social balance, spiritual and secular laws. The Black Death not only broke up families, as the Romans
In 1340 an infectious disease was spread by wild rats that carried bacteria. The reason why it was so deadly and gross was because the wild rats would carry Yersinia Pestis, which the fleas of the rats would bite into them and then bite into the humans. This was called The Black Death, also known as the Plague. The Black Death killed millions of people. The Black Death was one of europe 's most devastating widespreads in human history.
I have a received a ticket to go anywhere I choose to go. Out of all the places I would choose to go I would choose to back in time to the year 1340 back when the black plague was disaster brought upon by the wrath of God, to show them a way to contain the virus, and possibly help stop the spread of the virus sooner. The Black Death or also known as the black plague was one of the world’s most devastating pandemics in human history, it resulted in nearly 75 to 200 million deaths. That was about 30-60% of Europe’s total population. The plague reached Sicily in October 1347, and was carried by twelve Genoese galleys.
The final major outbreak of the Plague was known as The Great Plague of London which occurred in the 1600’s. The first outbreak called the Justinian Plague ripped through the Middle East and Asia killing tens of millions of people. This outbreak changed society at the time and the rebuilding
I believe the Han Empire collapsed because of the Silk Road, a trading route from China to the Mediterranean. It bought some pro’s and con’s, like the spread of different cultures and the spread of the Bubonic Plague not only across China but parts of Europe as well. The Black Death originated in Europe and was spread across the eastern part of the world. It killed many people in the Han Empire meaning it killed thousands upon thousands. "Since most Empires were not advanced in their sanitation systems it spread quickly".
During the mid-fourteenth century, a plague hit Europe. Initially spreading through rats and subsequently fleas, it killed at least one-third of the population of Europe and continued intermittently until the 18th century. There was no known cure at the time, and the bacteria spread very quickly and would kill an infected person within two days, which led to structural public policies, religious, and medical changes in Europe. The plague had an enormous social effect, killing much of the population and encouraging new health reforms, it also had religious effects by attracting the attention of the Catholic Church, and lastly, it affected the trade around Europe, limiting the transportation of goods. As a response to the plague that took place
