Thanks for the link.
Antibiotics can today prevent the disease from becoming pneumonic.
That is a reassuring statement.
I have to agree with you.
If it was airborne this could account for the bleeding of the lungs.
Would that also account for the painful swellings, at a guess (and that's what it is) in the armpits, legs etc, could be from fleas.
How it travelled so fast is pointing again to airborne, but them little critters (fleas) can get around and multiply fairly quickly.
Flea bites are typically red and inflamed. Overall symptoms include itchiness, and rashes. Fleas can spread rapidly and move between areas to include
eyebrows, eyelashes, and pubic regions
Yep hope they haven't opened up pandoras box
Painful swellings (buboes) of the lymph nodes
These swellings, or buboes, would appear in the armpits, legs, neck, or groin
A bubo was at first a red color. The bubo then turned a dark purple color, or black
Other symptoms of the Black Death included:
a very high fever
the victim begins to vomit
bleeding in the lungs
