  • I love that he uploaded this during the peak of Covid-19

  • and this is why vaccines are pretty nice to have.

  • 4:49 i guess wuhan doesn’t have a very good track record

  • That map is inaccurate, the plague avoided Poland. Poland in its Golden Age was able to keep it out. Partly because they had an aggressive policy to combat it and the other reason was that they had huge cat population(since Polish superstition forbade killing them). Stray cats helped kill rats, which spread the plague

  • COME ON CHINA WHY YOU ALWAYS DROP VIRUSES ON US

  • Italy: First European country to get Black Death Also Italy: First European country to get COVID I see a pattern

  • Doom of rats Reallifelore see my channel with me

  • 2020: yo my guy lets add that to your list okay 2021: alright bro adds to list

  • Less people = higher wages + cheaper real estate. meanwhile: Leftists still want to keep importing thousands of useless workers that devalue labor and jack up property prices but somehow they're for the working class.

  • Interesting fact, there was a plague in 1820, then in 1920 and now in 2020 😳

    • There where also several other pandemics in-between those years, but yeah cool whatever.

  • Pandemics "rare"

  • not wuhan again 😠

  • 2020: write that down write that down

  • At least the old world was able to recover 😔 the americas werent so lucky

  • Hmm...? A global pandemic originating in Wuhan? Where have I seen that before?

  • They need to get rid of wouhan

  • yeah we should go ahead and just cancel wuhan

  • Stay careful kid. Wuhan jokes are incoming.

  • Wuhan ?!! Again!!!

  • 4:58 I heard that Discord notification.

  • tf is wrong with China

  • Coronavirus: Doesn't watch video but reads title Coronavirus: Hold my beer

  • Didn’t know Micah carried the Bubonic Plaque.

  • I regret that i was eating while watching this video...

  • This aged well

  • RealLifeLore: the pleague outbreaks in Province of Hubei AROUND Wuhan Everyone:ThEBlAckDeaTh starTz iN WuHAn

  • first time i heard the black death started in wuhan sound like you are changing history to suit current events.

  • To early

  • Imagine how populated europe would be if this didnt happen

  • And Covid is an absolute joke compared to bubonic plague.

  • Guess before even looking: the comments will be filled with comments about 2020 and the coronavirus

  • Wuhan bout to start a killstreak

  • 2:29 That's not a rat. That's a muskrat, a North American species.

  • is it just me or does this guy sound like Technoblade's twin

  • People think Aliens will end the human race.They are wrong it's actually Wuhan

  • Wuhan: soooo, i discovered a virus, but it went out of controllll andddd now its spreading. Ummmm. BYE Europe: oh cmon not again!

  • Everyone: omg 2020 is so bad it’s the start to the worst pandemic in history. . . . 1340s and 1919: am I a joke to you

  • Can we like shut down wuhan completely its like they do it on purpose

  • Thanos started early lol.

  • This was a real plague, and people just died with their boots on.

  • WHAT IS WRONG WITH CHINA!

  • Thanos: I'm gonna wipe out half of the population China: hold my Wuhan

  • The way China is always related to that kind of shit is... Curious (to say the least)

  • Unlike the Black Death, COVID-19 is likely to have terrible long-term economic effects. It has a much lower fatality rate than the plague, but instead of being somewhat evenly distributed, the risk of death from COVID is much higher for older people than for the working-age population. Many people in white-collar jobs can work remotely, allowing them to remain employed without increasing their risk of exposure. That’s usually not an option for lower-wage workers, who thus bear a much higher risk of job-related exposure, while so having much worse access to health care. The travel, restaurants, and retail industries-which employ a ton of lower-skilled labor-will be among the last to recover, so the risk of long-term unemployment is much higher for these folks. Some may feel pressure to take especially high-risk jobs that now pay less, due to the downward pressure on wages. Add in the racial disparities in economic status, access to and quality of health care, etc. seen throughout the West, and one can easily imagine just how destabilizing the pandemic might ultimately be.

  • I am so glad that covid 19 does not have mortality rate like Bubonic Plague . We need to stop hiding now in fear COVID has a 3% chance of death . I know that every life lost is a tragedy every life is precious they would not want you to live in fear being locked up but vigilant and still life to it's fullness. Stop watching the news they do this with purpose for a political agenda.

    • Covid 19 has long term effects

    • COVID-19 infected 52,000,000 and killed 1,300,000 people. MERS infected 2500 and killed 800, while SARS infected 8000 and killed 700. Therefore, all species of Coronavirus are deadlier than Yersinia Pestis.

    • If social distancing, contact tracing, quarantine and masks never existed for the whole year of 2020, then COVID-19 would be the "NUMBER ONE DEADLIEST PANDEMIC OF ALL HUMAN HISTORY" if HIV and AIDS never existed at all. The only disease in human history deadlier than COVID-19 other than flu is AIDS (in case fatality ratio).

    • Moral of the story: Bubonic plague is a pathetic disease compared to AIDS and COVID-19. You are like a 15 year old dude telling his friends "I got my Ph.D. in Psychology from high school because I watched Dr. Phil on TV."

    • HIV: people infected with AIDS spread AIDS when they have sex without a condom. SARS-COV-2: people infected with COVID-19 spread COVID-19 when they cough and sneeze without a mask. Yersinia Pestis: My method of spreading PLAGUE is too slow and too puny to cause a pandemic.

  • Can't help but think all these deaths were natures way of controlling the worst virus of all, human beings.

  • Belgium and poland didn't exist at this time

  • Whos watching this after California had a case reported a case of this.

    • Around 9 cases of bubonic are reported in the US every year. It never went away, we just know how to treat it.

  • History is on a loop.

  • basically all pandemics start in china because there is no hygiene

  • The Black Death disappeared without a vaccine. COVID-19: 🙈 🙉

  • so that's how it feels like when thanos snaps his fingers

  • Reallifelore: the black death is the most worst pandemic in the world Covid-19: i’m about to ruin this man’s whole career

  • Lets not hope for a *updated* video on this topic

  • Meanwhile the New World was just vibing.

  • "infecting even the emperor himself" The US: well fuck

  • Ah, I love NOlong Recommendations, just in time for COVID.

  • Wuhan is the start of global pandemics?

  • Shout out to all the people seeing this comment in the pandemic of COVID19

  • Not capitalism, mercantilism.

  • Ah yes 2020

  • Covid : *are you challenging me?*

  • Wuhan🙄🙄 World factory of viruses Who's agree with me😅😅😅

  • That's cool,the plague inc music

  • *Me playing plague inc* :Starts in China. Wuhan: Nooooo not again

  • when the world made it's rules: world: ok England you invade country's china: but i wanted that world :fine you can make all the pandemics in 2020 china :he he he he he he he

  • They should've moved to greenland

  • Always Asia I’m joking 🙃

  • Coronavirus I think you forgot to invite me!

  • Mongols threw infected bodies... why nobody talks about it ?

  • Again Wuhan 🤣🤣🤣

  • Old People: ThE cOrOnA vIrUs Is tHe WoRsT vIrUs EvEr Bubonic plauge: Hold my plauge doctor

  • This is a random comment. The world should be called Afro-Eurasstralmericantartica

  • Can America just nuke Wuhan

  • What the hell is with China and starting pandemics

  • Hardcore History does a great podcast on the Black Death called Bubonic Nukes. Check it out!

  • Me in Civ 6 captures china’s city wuhan. It’s china’s best city. Me razes it anyway

  • Covid: I'm gonna wipe out humanity! Bubonic plague: Ya can't run without learning how to walk, son.

    • @UCLfz8HT49MmO4VaNZ6Ndxbg And this is why you are too stupid to have a debate about "Black Death vs COVID-19" with me. You are too illiterate to post another NOlong comment, let alone trying to reply to me to disprove any of my posted comments.

    • @UCLfz8HT49MmO4VaNZ6Ndxbg Moral of the story: Bubonic plague is a pathetic disease compared to AIDS and COVID-19. You are a 15 year old dude telling his friends "I got my Ph.D. in Psychology in high school because I watched Dr. Phil on TV."

    • @UCLfz8HT49MmO4VaNZ6Ndxbg HIV: people infected with AIDS spread AIDS when they have sex without a condom.

    • @UCLfz8HT49MmO4VaNZ6Ndxbg Your chance of recovering from COVID-19 at the age of 21 today without having medical access to ICU and a ventilator is lower than an average 15 year old teenager being elected as a President of The United States in 2024. Even though that teenager in 2024 would be too young to graduate high school, and can't leave high school unless dropping out.

    • @UCLfz8HT49MmO4VaNZ6Ndxbg I can prove that COVID-19 is already deadlier than Black Death. 2020s COVID-19 has killed 220,000 people in The United States within 11 months, 1350s Black Death was nowhere near that lethal. If Black Death tried to compare itself to COVID-19, Black Death would cry to mommy about being the weakest link ever.

  • Where are these claims that it started in Wuhan coming from? Every time I look it up historians don’t even seem sure it started in China at all? And those that do put it in Sichuan or the North?

  • Poland disagrees

  • Wuhan? Huh, sounds familiar...

  • And people wonder why I'm scared of flies fleas and such

  • You marked England incorrectly. Half the areas you highlighted was Wales.

  • Why is wuhan the epicenter of the end of human kind

  • Ironic the plague started in Wuhan

  • China is trying to kill us

  • "hey were finally safe from the mongols!" mongols- *starts catapulting bodies*

  • Tjis is cool

  • Of course it started in china

  • Why is it always in Wuhan

  • 60% is a high-end estimate as to what proportion of Europeans died during the Black Death. I've seen estimates as low as 25-35%, which is still horrifyingly high.

  • 2:08 is so disgusting!

  • A highly infecting virus appear Italy: ohhh shit.

  • In 1000 years maybe someone will make a video like this about COVID-19

  • Freaking Wuhan...

  • It was caused actually because of incest

  • So Thanos did exist.

  • *So, it's carried by animals, started in Wuhan, spread to Europe and hit Italy the hardest?*

  • It’s always China

  • Lesson learned: never go to Wuhan Sorry china
