1. The Black Death started in the spring when there were many dead bodies then the disease spread from them to the West. Its spread meant that the Gods wanted this for retribution .
2. The black death looks very gross. People bleed from their nose and huge tumors near their groin or armpits are formed and then they spread through the body. Black dots form on their bodies. Because the disease was very contagious it was hard to treat.
3. If a disease on the scale of the Black Death were to occur now in the United States, we would have a much firmer grasp on what to treat. Today, there is so much technology and studies that we can figure stuff out pretty quickly. I think they would develop some type of medicine or vaccine to stop the disease and they would have to keep the infected people separate from others so it doesn't spread.
