Bubonic Plague V.s.Small Pox

            Have you ever wondered what the worst disease is?.
             Well I have and I think it is a mix between small pox and the bubonic .
             Plague. The diseases both have killed many and have lasted in there time .
             But which was worse? Here is some general information on both of the .
             Smallpox is a highly contagious virus that can be spread through the air and infects 30% of the people who are exposed to it. There are 3 types of small pox, the true virulent form and the mild form alas tram, and a cattle form called cattle pox. Small pox also got the name Great pox. Once infected, there is no cure. None of our current antiviral medications is effective. Smallpox can spread from person to person and through infected blankets, linens, and clothing. It existed in Europe, Asia, and in Africa.
             The Black Death killed some 25 million Europeans in a devastating outbreak between 1347 and 1352, and then reappeared periodically for more than 300 years. Scholars had thought flea-infested rats living on ships brought the disease from China to Italy and then the rest of the continent. When a more or less dependable census became available to China, in 742 AD there were 8.9 million people recorded. Where as in 2 AD there was 12.3 million people recorded.
             Most of this was taken back in time when there we not many medical procedures that could be done to help the patient. The Bubonic plague was one of the worse that hit Europe. They believe that the plague may have originated from northeast India. Small pox was believed to be originated form Europe.
             Now see both have killed and effected many lives but I would have to say that the bubonic plague is the worse of the two. So what do you think is the worse? And I believe that they both were really bad but the Black Death has taken many more lives than small pox.
