They died from a flea that came upon a ship from another country. The flea bit the rats, the rats poop made to food dirty of the English people. The rat would also bite people transferring the disease. Probably around 2/3 of the people died.

It spread faster than you could blink.. In Italy they had a small island between Venice and Lido called Poveglia Island. In 1348 when the Bubonic Plague arrived in Venice, the Poveglia Island became a quarantine colony. The Plague killed 1 out of 3 Europeans. Fearing the unbridled spread of the disease, Venice exiled many of its symptom-bearing citizens there. It was clearly a death sentence. At the island's center the dead and those too sick to protest were burned on giant pyres. This included the tens of thousands of Venice citizens dying on the mainland. These fires would burn once more in 1630 when the Black Death again swept through the city. Long after the fires were extinguished, Napoleon's military campaign relied on the island's ghostly legends and defendable position to protect stores of gunpowder and weapons.

In the late 1800s, the area's mentally ill resided in an asylum in Poveglia. The asylum was poorly constructed and was used as a place of exile rather than rehabilitation. There are rumors that in the 1930s, a doctor performed strange experiments on the patients here; eventually, the doctor went mad and threw himself from the asylum's tall bell tower. Though the bell in the tower was removed decades ago, locals still claim to hear its chimes echo from the lonely island.
By the mid-20th century, the facility was converted into a geriatric center, which closed in 1975. Today, the entire island is abandoned; locals and tourists are prohibited from visiting, and fishermen steer clear of the accursed place. In recent years, Italian construction crews attempted to restore the former hospital building, but but abruptly stopped without explanation, leaving locals to speculate that they were driven away by the island's dark forces.
More than 100,000 people died there.

The soil on the Poveglia Island, combined with the charred remains of some of the bodies, formed a layer of sticky ash on the land. The top layer of ash has dried in the sun to form a fine dust that swirls in the air and enchants in lungs. Part of the island core consists of a level from human stays. Fishermen avoid this area, as the chances of catching a body part or two are high.
