Apparently the Black Death caused about 25 million people in total, although stretching for years, and
that’s when there were relatively fewer people about. It appears China Is in the frame for that one too.

Of course, they had no idea of what caused The Black Death back then and had little idea of how to deal with it - apart from running/hiding from the infected. Today, the bacterium (Yersinia pestis) which transmitted the disease from rats to humans would be treated with anti-biotics (although bacteria are now becoming resistent to such treatment). Viruses are rather harder to deal with, particularly when they keep mutating into different forms. Even in the C14th, transmission was quick along travel routes but now, with so many people travelling the globe every day, a contagious disease can cause a global pandemic very quickly. The Black Death only infected Eurasia, not the whole world.Even so, The Black Death is estimated to have killed 30% to 60% of Europe's population....

Just shows we should ban all forms for air travel and also reduce the pollution that is always blamed on cars.

Yes but imagine the outcry from the hand-wringing liberal-left brigade if we said they had to go elsewhere (home maybe?).......
We'd never here the end of it!
They'd be nagging us from here to kingdom-come about our evil prejudices and how we're all far right xenophobic fanatics, who need to re-evaluate our lives and submit to their will, because they always know best, etc. etc. etc..............zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzztt!!
Oh, sorry, they do this anyway....................... :roll: :lol:
Best wishes,
Mike.
