The Black Plague occurred in China in the 1330s In the early 1330s an outbreak of deadly bubonic plague occurred in China. The bubonic 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. The disease also causes spots on the skin that are red at first and then turn black.
The plague spread to England In the following August, the plague had spread as far north as England. People called it the “The Black Death” because of the black spots it produced on the skin. A terrible killer was loose across Europe, and Medieval medicine had nothing to combat it.
The three worst types of the plagues The bubonic plague was the most commonly seen form of the Black Death. The mortality rate was 30-75%. The pneumonic plague was the second most commonly seen form of the Black Death. The septicemic plague was the most rare form of all
Symptoms Headaches Nausea aching joints fever of degrees, vomiting and a general feeling of illness symptoms took from 1-7 days to appear.

In the middle ages, health was terrible. There were dirty rodents running around everywhere. As population in cities increased, health and hygiene worsened, leading to health problems.
They didn’t have indoor plumbing, and they never washed their hands either. They also barely ever to a bath. They were dirty people.
The Bubonic Plague started from fleas that rode on rats. The flea in the Mid-Evil ages was a deadly insect. Back then nobody knew what was the cause of the Bubonic Plague
The people thought that the cause of The Bubonic Plague was God punishing people for their sins.
