This Day in History: 1345 – The Black Death, also known as the Plague, starts claiming victims in Mongolia and China in a deadly outbreak that will sweep across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia during the 14th century, leaving an estimated 25 million people dead in its wake.
Fact of the Day: The Black Death is now understood to be bubonic plague, caused by the yersinia pestis bacterium. It was carried by fleas that usually traveled on rats, but jumped off to other mammals when the rat died. It is believed to have originated in Mongolia in approximately 1320.
#StrangeButTrue: A flea can jump 40 times its body length. That is equivalent to a human jumping the length of a football field.
