You know, I find it quite fascinating how a plague like the Black Death can be deadly and horrible (the westerneuropean population sank from 75-80 million people to 20-40 million in 1430) and yet trigger change. I want to think it's horrible, but when I think of the invovations they were forced to do due to the lack of workers... I can't. I'm not entirely sure how to think about that. But it is... fascinating. (And just think about Magvel! How much potentionally could change after the earthquake (and a following plague because I can't get it out of my head)!)
The first wave in 1340s was incredible. The average percentage of people dying was 40-60%. That's half of the population in average :O jhpgaeibnvkla what, what, in case of a "mild" plague only 20-25% percent die? Oh boy.
And to bring more interesting and fascinating facts; the losses in London in 1348, Februar-April (estimated percentage of losses; 25-50%):
- deaths: 2000 deaths in those two months
- 34 burials in average per day
During the high of the plague in the months Juni-September; average number of deaths: 290 per day
