- Bubonic Plague is an infectious disease of animals and humans caused by a bacterium named Yersinia pestis. People usually get plague from the bite of a rodent flea that is carrying the plague bacterium or by handling an infected animal. Millions of people in Europe died from plague in the Middle Ages, when flea-infested rats inhabited human homes and places of work.
- The symptoms become worse as the disease spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system. The later symptoms, as you begin to experience the last stages of the disease, are your back starts to hurt and painful swelling of your lymph nodes.
- Plague, was a term that was applied in the Middle Ages to all fatal epidemic diseases, but now it is only applied to an acute, infectious, contagious disease of rodents and humans, caused by a short, thin, gram-negative bacillus. In humans, plague occurs in three forms: bubonic plague, pneumonic plague, and septicemic plague.
- The Black DeathThe Black Death was the name given to an epidemic of bubonic plague that devastated Europe in the mid-14th century, so-called because of the black spots that appeared on the bodies of the victims. Spread by fleas that had fed on the blood of infected rodents, the plague is estimated to have killed off from 25% to 50% of the European population between 1347 and 1351.
- Whatever the reason, we know that the outbreak began there and spread outward. While it did go west, it spread in every direction, and the Asian nations suffered as cruelly as anywhere.
- It seems that the Black Death is a combination of three differnet types of plagues: Bubonic, Pneumonic, and septicaemic, with Bubonic being the most popular.There are many symptoms of The Plague, The first symptom is a headache, followed by nausea, vomitting, aching joints, a widespread feeling of ill health, and a blackish swelling.
- William H. McNair, the information review officer for the CIA, said a search of agency records found no evidence of “any kind of operational, contractual or employment relationship” with Nicaraguan cocaine dealer Danilo Blandon, Los Angeles crack cocaine dealer “Freeway” Rick Ross, former California police officer Ronald Lister or David Scott Weekly, whom Lister has named as his CIA contact.
- It was first thought that the rats themselves transmitted the Bubonic Plague because when people found dead rats in the towns’ streets, they would usually flee their civilization in fear of the rodents.
- The outbreak of plague destroyed his dream. The second major outbreak of bubonic plague, and the most devestating, occurred in Europe in 134 -50. Known as the Black Death, bubonic plague spread across Asia and Europe. By the end of 1348, plague covered all of Italy and most of France.
- In the American and Canadian west, from Texas and Oklahoma in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west, it is most often transmitted from species of squirrels. The last occurrence of transmissions from rats to people, or people to people in the United States occurred in 19 4 in Los Angeles.
- The Bubonic plague is a contagious disease, which can reach epidemic proportions, transmitted to humans by the fleas of an infected rat. The most telltale sign of the plague is the enlarged lymph nodes in the groin, armpit, or neck. The name for the Bubonic plague originated from the name for the swollen lymph nodes: Buboes.
- Isaac Asimov, one of the greatest thinkers of our generation, theorized that there were three ways man could be destroyed. The first being an unavoidable catastrophe of an astronomical proportion, such as the sun going nova or a meteor striking the Earth, the second global annihilation caused by nuclear or other highly destructive man-made weapons.
- In a time when social health was poor, doctors were scarce and ineffective, the largest, most deadly disease outbreak in the history of the world took its toll on mankind. It is estimated that fifty million people lost their lives to the Bubonic Plague that ravaged through Europe for five years.
- To properly understand the impact of the plague and the historical marks it left it is necessary to consider all aspects of society. The Bubonic Plague otherwise known as the Black Death was responsible for the deaths of over 25 million people reducing the population of Europe by one third.
- Scholars often dispute the origin of the bubonic plague. One legend holds out that the plague broke out in the Tarter army under Khan Djani-Beg that was besieging the city of Caffa in the Crimea. The Khan ordered the heads of Tarter victims hurled into Caffa to infect the defenders.
- It can be spread through aerosol droplets released through coughs, sneezes, or through fluid contact. It may also become a secondary result of a case of untreated bubonic or septicemic plague. Although not as common as the bubonic strain, it is more deadly.
- Much of history is a record of the disasters men bring upon themselves. But some of the worst misfortunes of mankind–floods, earthquakes, famines, and plagues–seem to be inherent in the natural scheme of things or acts of God. The most terrible of these of which we have knowledge of was the Black Plague, which ravaged Europe in the fourteenth century (Cohen 106).
- In the early 1330s an outbreak of deadly bubonic plague occurred in China. Plague mainly affects rodents, but fleas can transmit the disease to people. Once people are infected, they infect others very rapidly. Plague causes fever and a painful swelling of the lymph glands called buboes, which is how it gets its name.
- (Hecker, 199 ) This was a minor outbreak and there were others similar to it, but since no one knew where it came from and so few were dying from it, no one took the time to find out. But then in 1334, an epidemic struck the northeastern Chinese province of Hopei that people couldn t ignore.
- Plague is a term applied randomly in the Middle Ages to all fatal epidemic diseases, but now restricted to an acute, infectious, contagious disease of rodents and humans, caused by a short, thick bacillus, Yersinia pestis. In humans, plague occurs in three forms: bubonic plague, pneumonic plague, and septicemic plague.
