The Black Death
Transcript of The Black Death
Outbreaks of plague since 19th century to present-day
Plague has been faded away since the 19th century, but has been replaced by cholera in the 19th and 20th centuries. There were some major outbreaks of plague in London and Italy in the 17th and 18th century, but none from the 19th century to the present
Factors that influence outbreaks: Social Conditions
- People didn't healthcare back then, so when people got the plague, they had nowhere to go to most of the times.
- People didn't have education back then either, so they didn't know what was going on with them. So they just thought that maybe it was a punishment sent by god or magic, and they never found a proper way to cure themselves.
- People didn't maintain proper hygiene, so that was a reason most of the people suffered and died from the black death.

Killer Epidemics in the 14th to 16th centuries
The black death wasn't the only disease that was going around. There were many other diseases like the Small Pox, Measles, Typhus, Syphilis, Leprosy, Malaria, Tuberculosis
Factors that influence outbreaks: Environmental Conditions
- There was a lot of of population that got killed by the black death in Europe, and one of the reasons was that people caught it from each other and didn't know what to do.
- They didn't wash their hands, or stay away from other people when they were sick.
People got the black death from rats, and they caught it from each other as well. And they didn't know what to do because they didn't have education. But now we don't have have the black death anymore because of new technology and education.
