Black Deaths Symptoms
The Symptoms of Black Death are the following…
· Painful swelling of the lymph nodes
· The lymph nodes would start red and then turn black
· Very high fever
· Muscle pains
· Bleeding in the lungs
· Mental disorientation
· The desire to sleep, which would kill the victim if they give in
· Only live 2-4 days after contracting the disease
How did it start?
The black death originated central Asia and spread to Europe. It started because of unclean rodents who had infected fleas.
It blocked the fleas stomach causing the flea to be continually hungry. So it would feast on human blood and black death would infect the human. The human and flea would die within days of infection.
Black Death Devastated Cities
It is estimated that 20 million people died from this disease.
Dirty rodents were the reason behind the death of 20 million people.
The infamous sword tested every mans strength in the 13th century. Until King Arthur prevailed and pulled it out of the stone. (Fantasy)
