To spread so rapidly you’d think it would have to be from people coughing on each other, or drinking from the same ladle or something. Very odd.

Black Death travelled much faster than any spread of Yersinia pestis we know about not only that it spread much wider.

Not sure unlike plague. Smallpox was always there so it would be interesting to see a study of the America's after the Spanish came.maybe someone here can help us out?
