According to Thought co., “when you have the plague you feel tired and sore in your arms and legs, you also have headaches that turn to chills and fevers. When it got bad lumps and swelling would cause internal bleeding that would lead to blood in urine and stools. People would have terrible pains before they died and they could die within a week of contracting the disease.”(Snell) According to Thought co.,” Most people during this time would wear clothes around their mouths and keep them in wooden chests far away from rodents or other animals that could carry the disease. They would also burn any building that had an infected person in it, and would burn any animals that died from the disease as too.” (Snell)”Figure 2f from: Irimia R, Gottschling M (2016) Taxonomic revision of Rochefortia Sw.
