Black Death Period 2

In order for history not to repeat itself, we need to understand the causes and effects of certain turning points. The Black Death (or Black Plague, or Bubonic Plague) was one of those turning points for Middle Ages Europe. Please use the following websites to research about the plague, as well as the packet that you received. You must complete the map in the packet to be turned in. Additionally, you should comment on this blog and answer these questions:
1) Imagine that you are a doctor during the Black Plague...what advice would you give to your patients?
2) Imagine you are a victim of the Black Plague...would you rather survive or die of the disease? Why?

1. if I was a Dr. during the time of the black plague, I would show my patients how to use proper hygiene. this would stop the plage from spreading so rapidly.

2. If I was a victim of the black plague I would rather die than survive it. A little bit less people would get the disease if I died rather than passed it on.

Sincerely,

Question#1~If I were a doctor during the black plague I would be so disgusted! I wouldn't want to help because I wouldn't want the black plague. If I were a doctor the advice I would give my patients is just have someone kill you it's better than this!

1)I would tell my patients that they should just go get some rest, to regenerate their body. I would also tell them about the proper hygiene. That would prevent the disease from spreading so fast, or rapidly. There is germs everywhere but you can make sure they don't spread as a disease.

2) I would rather die because I wouldn't want to suffer through all the pain and hardship for a long time. And that way if my family or close friends died I wouldn't have to suffer seeing them dead. Although they would have to see me dead! :( It all ends sad.

Question#1~If I was a victim of the black plague I would rather die than than survive it because it would be horrible to suffer the black plague. If I die I would stop the black plague from spreading from me so less people would die.

1. If I was a doctor in the time of the plague, I would tell my patients that if they were already sick to go away from people, and if they were healthy to stay away from sick people. I would also tell them to move to another area if they have family there.
2. That is a tough one, I would most likely go to a nice place, like the forest and die, to avoid spreading the disease.

If I was a doctor I would help the people instead of just taking their money.
If I was a victim I would just like to die instead of suffer and live.

1 If I were a doctor in the time of the black plague I would teach my patients good hygiene like washing their hands, bathing, and getting rid of garbage and waste. This would help stop the spread of the disease.

2 If I were infected with the black plague I would rather die than suffer the pain. Also it might stop my family from getting sick.

Question #1: If I was a Dr. during the period of time where the black plague was spreading, I would retire and go home. Although I would tell my patients to coat them selves with mercury and to place themselves in the oven. I guess you wouldn't be able to do much. I would just want money! (Don't try this at home.)

1. I would give my patients perfumes and I would tell them to have proper hygiene and plenty of rest.

2. I would rather live this makes it easier for others so they do not have to mourn my loss which I am sure plenty of people would and that way I could help other people with the disease since I would be immune.

Question #2: If I were a victim of the black plague I would rather be killed than die of the black plague. It just seems so miserable. I would rather go dig a hole and bury myself.

If you gave them the answer the real doctors did, it was use herbs and charms. I would tell them to geet a cat to chase away infected mice, and take baths, alot. Plus stay in side uless you really need to leave. Jenecee

If I was a doctor during the Black Plague, I would tell my patients not to buy stuff and to wash themselves daily. But I wouldn't want to be the doctor, because my pateints would be DISGUSTING!! But al least I would get $RICH$
If I was a victim of the Black plague, gosh, I would just kill myself!!

#1 I would show them how to get clean (hygiene)or tell them say good bye to evey body they know and die. I would let them choose which one they wanted to do.
#2 if I were a victim of the black plague I would have better hygiene or just kill myself to get it over with(probably not).and I would try to survive it until it was gone.

1) I would just tell them to wash hands, take baths regularly, and to dispose waste properly and not to just dump it on the street. All of these would keep the Black Plague less common and it wouldn't spread less quickly.

2) If i had the Black Plague i would rather die some where away from the town to make sure less people would catch the disease.

1.If I were a doctor during the Black Plague I would probably show them how to properly dispose of their waste and how to bathe and keep clean, and just do the best I could to help
2. If I were a victim of the black plague I would rather die then live with having bumps in awkward places all over my body! :)

If I were a doctor during the black plague I would tell my patients to stay indoors and away from other peeps. Then it wouldn't have spread so severely.

If I were a victim, I would much rather die than live a painful life.

1.If I was a doctor in that time I would probably tell them to enjoy the few moments they had and hope for the best.

2. If I were a victim of the Black Death I would want to die so I didn't have to see all the suffering and so I could not have to live in fear.

1) If I were a doctor during the Black Plague, I would tell my patients to stay in bed and away from others. I would also say if they had to go to the bathroom, to at least dig a hole and bury it! Don't dump it out the window for it to land on somebody! ;P

2) If I were a victim of the Black Plague, I think I would rather survive so that maybe I could figure out how to stop the sickness in the short time I would have left. :( Then I would share my knowledge with other people and hope they can stop the Plague.

oh yeah, sorry, George Bacon is Ha'a. :)

This is a ridiculas question because we wouldn't have the same knowlodge that we have now.

1.I would recommend having them dig a hole and put spikes in then have a random guy push you in but before that happens slip him some money that way afterwards he would fill in the hole to help stop the disease. If he valued his life I would have himlock himself in a room to help stop the disease from spreading and teach him simple hygiene.

2.If I had the black plauge I would rather die and have someone simoltanolesly stab me in the heart and slice of my head that way I wouldn't have to die from a plague slowly, I would hopefully go to a better place, and I shouldn't have to feel pain in the end.

Question #1: If I were a doctor during the black plague I would tell my patients about proper hygiene and eating.

Question #2: If I was a victim of the black plague I would rather live then die because your going to suffer either way. If I lived i would be able to grow up and live normally with my family.
