The plague spread from China westward via the Silk Road.In the course of time, the plague reached Crimea and Constantinople.Goods from the East moved to Europe through Constantinople mainly and so did the plague.
From the Mediterranean, the plague spread further throughout Europe affecting more and more countries.
In such a way, the plague spread throughout Europe in the course of several years and affected the large population of Europe causing numerous deaths and depopulation of Europe.
After the appearance of the lumps, livid black spots appeared on the arms and thighs and other parts of the body. In such a way, the disease was extremely dangerous and people died fast, whereas the contamination meant virtually certain death to ill persons.
