1316 Plague – First Bulletin
Guglielmo was slowly analyzing the few and confused news brought by his informants around Europe about the ongoing Black Plague infection.
There were stories about some faulty potions that were not curing properly the sickness and about people rushing to catch the last ships, thinking to save themselves from the infection but ending to be infected the same.
The panic caused by a general disorganization caused a rapid climbing on the number of infections, this was very clear from the numbers.
Some people that were refusing to be cured or were simply shocked and unable to act ended in jail without any trial, only to be freed after some days – accordingly to the Gods Commandments – and thus spreading the infection again. Guglielmo noted how a Prison built in a far, desolated land could have been handy in this situation.
This infection wrecked havoc on all Europe; this was confirming the stories of an Italian eyewitness that Guglielmo found in a book about the 1314 Black Plague infection:
Realizing what a deadly disaster had come to them, the people quickly drove the Italians from their city. But the disease remained, and soon death was everywhere. Fathers abandoned their sick sons. Lawyers refused to come and make out wills for the dying. Friars and nuns were left to care for the sick, and monasteries and convents were soon deserted, as they were stricken, too. Bodies were left in empty houses, and there was no one to give them a Christian burial.
About one hour later, Guglielmo finally finished to collect and sum the numbers and completed a Infection Bulletin. Seems that finally the number were decreasing and that Nekro was to be once again defeated.
