The Black Death was one of the most catastrophic diseases recorded in ancient times, and some people also called it 'Magna Mortalitas' (great mortality), highlighting the high mortality rate.
It almost wiped out more population than any other known disaster.

While there are no clear records, historians estimate that between 1347 and 1351, the Black Death killed between 30% and 60% of Europe's population.
The Black Death was the deadliest disease plague epidemic that killed more than 25-30 million Europeans.
According to CNN Post, authorities of china said that in November 2019, two people were being treated for the plague.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 3,248 cases were reported worldwide from 2010 to 2015.
Yersinia pestis causes three types of plague in the human body: pneumonic, septicemic, and bubonic. And all these three plagues probably played some role in the pandemic.

- Loss of memory
The Septicemic plague is a blood infection, and its symptoms are:
