The Black Death or bubonic plague marched across Europe and Asia in the 14th century and killed a third of the population.
The death rate from bubonic plague was 19%.

On the return trip, the planes bring wounded back to the hospitals in Britain.
Gangrene from which millions have perished in past Wars has been conquered by the miracle of penicillin.
Scientists are manufacturing...
The miracle began in 1928 when a British scientist named Alexander Fleming left bacterial cultures in the sink.
Later he noticed one dish had gotten moldy.
The mold killed the bacteria, but Fleming couldn't stabilize or purify it.
That took a four-man team from Oxford and ten years.
They named the drug after the mold Penicillium led to penicillin.
Thanks to penicillin and plasma will come home to their thankful families.
The whole world of peace to come will reap the benefits of this great wartime medical discovery.
Penicillin was the dawn of a new age in medicine.
