A plague upon your household.
How weird would it be to get the plague? I can just imagine the conversation you would have with your doctor about it:
Dr: So yeah, it would appear you have come down with a bad case of plague.
You: uhhh, the plague as in the black death, bubonic variety? The one that killed millions of people in Medieval Europe?
You: People still get that?
Dr: Yeah. It's a really horrible and painful way to die.
You: I see.
According to The World Health Organisation In 2003, 9 countries reported 2118 cases and 182 deaths due to plague. The plague can now be effectively treated with suphonamide antibiotics, but only if it's caught early. That probably helps explain why sadly 98.9% of plague deaths reported in 2003 came from Africa.
Had there been a cure in Europe in the mid-14th century, probably a lot fewer than 25-35 million people would have died from a major plague pandemic that spread across Asia and the Middle East as well. Since there was no cure (and no known cause), people did the logical thing and blamed Jews, lepers, and anyone foreign. Thus, even more deaths resulted from these ignorant and ridiculous persecutions.
Good call guys.
