Summary
Concentrating on bubonic plague (Black Death) and cholera, this film gives a historical account of the spread of these diseases as man explored his world. When feudalism declined and trade developed in the 14th century, contact with new areas brought waves of epidemics. It is estimated that a quarter of the population died. In an effort to stem the epidemic, the Italian states isolated visitors for 40 days. "Quarantana" proved unsuccessful since it was actually the rodent population that was spreading the disease. The bubonic plague never really disappeared; in fact a kindergarten teacher died from it in 1980 in Lake Tahoe
