There are a lot of instances in history that are so spine chilling that it makes you realize how lucky you are to have been born at this time.

In this post, as a reminder of better times, we are listing down the 10 worst plagues in the history of mankind. Brace yourself:
10. Moscow Plague (1770)
It was a bubonic plague epidemic that had its origin in the Moldovan theater of the 1768–1774 Russian-Turkish war. After having discovered the existence of the plague, the government did not make the news public until a Russian-Finnish surgeon reported about it and the quarantine on the troops who had contracted the disease was enforced. The threat of the plagues peaked in 1771, killing thousands of people in a single day causing riots because the government was failing to control the situation.
