Black Death deaths: How many deaths were there from the plague?


Much like Covid-19, the plague used Italy, primarily Venice, as a crossing point, and despite pioneering organised responses killed 60 percent of the city’s population.

By 1351, the pandemic had petered out, thanks in part to quarantining efforts, but left behind a sea of deaths.

As the Black Death receded, 50 percent of Europe’s population came with it.

Between 25 and 50 million people lost their lives to the disease.
