What was the Bubonic Plague?
Eleboration on the remedies used by people to try and counter the disease:
More effective attempts at suppressing the disease were made by churchmen and public officials who would quarantine by walling up homes that contained infected members, and in cities like Milan and Venice ships that came from areas known as infected would be diverted to separate islands. Pope Clement VI even (supposedly) resorted to sitting between two large fires in order for the excess hear to destroy bacterium.
