We have all assumed, led by those who claimed to know, that the Black Death was 
bubonic plague, and spread by fleas on rats.

Some folks (historical forensic epidemiologists?) have recently read all the 
contemporary accounts and concluded that 
the BD was NOT the plague. Onset and symptoms wrong and progress quite a bit 
too rapid.

Last I noticed, they were unsure what it was, but suspecting a form of 
hemorrhagic fever.

I'm thinking there's not much known that is swifter. Nothing much more 
virulent, in terms of effect on those who catch 
it, either. We could imaging something to which fewer are immune, though, if 
that makes you happy. :-)

Zombie Apocalypse?
