The Bubonic Plague, a disease spread by fleas and rats, killed and decimated millions of people throughout central and northern Eurasia mainly in 1338 and throughout the medieval time period. Although this deadly disease killed many people, it actually helped the world become less populated which opened up more resources for all (Ziegler). All throughout the medieval time period, many early settlers fell victim to a devastating disease we refer to as the Bubonic plague. This disease has three different ways of spreading called the Epidemic, the Pneumonic, and the Septicemic (Stopper). This catastrophism is known as the deadliest conflict in human history because of how many early settlers died as a victim of this miserable disease. Almost one third of Europe’s population died as a result of the plague. As a result of the mass fatality that was going on, many businesses and farm owners couldn’t make enough money to sustain their businesses, so they had to start selling their land in order to survive (Hadley). Millions of children and adolescents were heavily affected and that’s why there is a very famous nursery rhyme called ”ring around the rosie” the meaning comes from the red rash ring that you get under your nostrils and around your face like saying you get a red ring around your nose (Wray). During the black plague it was very common for parents to abandon their children because of the plague. They would write future notes to their children and would give them to another parent or new guardian.This just one of the many symptoms of the plague. The bubonic plague has been recorded to be a disease originating from parts of central and northern Asia during the post Medieval time period but soon made its way through Europe’s naval ports and roads. The main countries affected where Italy, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom and most middle eastern and African countries. This disease was first theorized to be spread by fleas on rats while trading cargo with Asian civilizations but later theorized to be spread also by the life stalk being transported out of the countries that make up Asia (Rosenhek). But that wasn’t the only way the plague spread, according to scientists the plague was also spread through the air, we know this version of the plague as the Pneumonic plague. When a person has plague, they cough droplets of the plague into the air called bad air and with millions of people exhaling that disease the clean air starts becoming toxic for humans to inhale. Another way the plague was spread was from human to human contact or the epidemic (Rosenhek). This was the most common considering the amount of people who try to cram themselves in tight communities. The last way the plague caused destruction is called the septicemic plague. The septicemic plague is a form of the plague that gets into your bloodstream. This could have been from an infected person getting his or her bodily fluids in to a cut or opening of the body or ingested through the mouth. This version of the plague has the deadliest death rate. Some researchers have said if you ingest an infected cell of the plague. You have only a ten percent chance of survival (Wray).According to modern day scientists and researchers rats where the main reason the plague spread so quickly. This happened because fleas feed on the blood of rats and when that rat dies the flea needs to find a new food source so they started infecting humans with the disease as well as life stalk and household pets, this was really bad because if a cities food source gets infected with a biotoxin they wouldn’t get enough food to satisfy anybody. Some really smart nomadic people decided to form a secret civilization that quarantines them from the outside world. This adobe village included many farms with livestock to solve the food problem and only have few people join at a time. They only allow one entry once you leave you may never return. If a family member dies they are required to either bury that person in a pit with a lot of people or they would burn the corpse’s so they would no longer transmit anymore diseases. This was very sad because many Christian and religious families could not give their family members a proper burial (Holmgren, Albin, and Gerhard Borg).The scientific name of the black plague is Yersinia pestis. It is a very deadly bacterium that causes very painful lymph nodes which are swelling of the throat, arms, legs. These lymph nodes can range in size from a pebble to a grapefruit. Along with those swelling bumps is a miserable flu like sickness that closes up your air way.Every European country fell victim to the disease as it tore its way up north of the Mediterranean and into many large civilizations. In 1351 the disease had already spread all the way up north into Russia which heavily impacted the country’s population and culture meaning It altered their country completely. Italy got the worst of it the disease had made it all the way north by the end of winter in 1349. Another place that had a really bad reaction was London. London was a really filthy place during the medieval time period. London was so dirty that fifty tons of of feces where inhabited every day (Medieval London: 10 disgusting facts).In many medieval literature and art, you may find thousands of paintings and scribes describing in detail what the world around them looked like these paintings include Triumph of Death by Bruegel the Elder or the The Dance of Death where two very famous pieces of art and depict evil spirits taking lives of innocent people in form of skeletons (Chronicle of the Black Death). The disease has been said to have many symptoms. These include diarrhea, vomiting nausea, dark black and purple bumps and bruises as well as fever and fatigue are just a few of the deadly components that come along with this disease. The name black death comes from the black deterioration of your skin that you get on your limbs and body (Stopper MD). In 1352 the plague began to settle down and started moving up and down every year for the next two hundred years when it finally came to a stop. As medicine started advancing the death toll started plummeting further down. After the years of destruction it took one hundred fifty years just to make it back to the original population before the bubonic plague (Stopper MD). Although this disease killed a vast majority of the people in the middle ages. It actually help the world become less populated which came with more resources that were very vital to the situation they were in. This means more medications more foods and less people to consume them. Another way the disease benefited us is it modified our dna so we wouldn’t be as vulnerable to the disease as well as other similar diseases (Jimenez). Another great thing that happened was the upgrading of hospitals. Before the plague hospitals where no more than a place where the sick go to be isolated from the public, but the plague changed that. Hospitals began upgrading their practices, their tools, and their medicine. At least after the horrors and the exhaustion some positive still comes out of the black plague (Jimenez). In my months of research, I found that the bubonic plague had many cool factual information, like did you know that only 0.2 percent of all people of that time where immune to the disease. Or did you know that the doctors wore beak masks filled with anti-plague herbs and chemicals so they wouldn’t get infected by what their patients who had infectious diseases. Or did you know that modern day human is only two to three percent likely to die from the disease because of evolution of humans (Knighton). The moral conflict of this time is the harsh ways of living and the worst and most miserable way to die which would include aching bumps with fever and a whole lot of vomiting. The compromise is the way we handled it afterwards. Like how I said earlier in my paper I said that hospitals began advancing in medicine and more hospitals where being built. What is even better is that the black plague starts up the beginning of the renaissance. The renaissance is a time where the world started advancing in knowledge, edicate and education. Over all what I learned about my project is that you don’t choose the way you die but you can choose how you prevent it. What our world can do to prevent this wide spread of disease from happening again is to always stay clean, make sure you get the proper treatment from proper authority and don’t stay in very crowded places known to be a source point of a disease. If you are infected our you think you are please go to a hospital and get a medical advisor (Rosenhek).
