2  The disease was caused by Yersinia pestis.  Bacillus ( rod shaped ).  Affects humans and animals.  It is found in wild rodents: rats, mice, squirrels, etc.  Transmitted from a bite, fleas, or inhaling it.  It doesn't take long for the bacteria to kill, most untreated patients will die within 48 hours.

3  The symptoms of the bubonic plague include:  Chills  Fevers  Coughing  Rapid pulse  Low blood pressure  Enlarged lymph nodes (common in the groin)

4  The effects are:  Your lymph nodes will get very swollen and tender  Your skin becomes red  The death rate is 60% for untreated victims, caused by sepsis.

5  First you should be hospitalized.  There are then antibiotics for you to take.  The antibiotics are called:  Gentamycic  Streptomycic

6  In the middle ages it was found in Europe  Killed a third of the population  Today it can be anywhere, but it is a lot more rare then it was in the middle ages

7  The medieval people made up a rhyme for the Bubonic Plague.  “Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posy, ashes ashes, we all fall down.”  The rosy rings are the swollen lymph nodes  Pocket full of posy is, people would put herbs in there pockets as a treatment method  Ashes, ashes was for the burning fever  We all fall down was then people died
