Bubonic Plague is spread by fleas in what is called as geometric proportion. When people started dying of plague, others fled to other towns. Some of them were in the incubation period and carried the disease to the next say ten towns.

When the phenomena got repeated, the number of towns was 10*10. In the next tern the number was 10*10*10. In the next tern the number was 10*10*10*10. In the next turn the number was 10*10*10*10*10. In the next turn the number was 10*10*10*10*10*10. Means 1,000,000.

Probably that number was equal to the number of villages and towns of the entire Europe.
