Outbreaks

It’s been a while since I posted a good info graphic but this one from Good should make up for that. It’s a scaled visualization on the world’s deadliest outbreaks in history. It’s flash but it makes it slightly easier to read the fine print that way.

Interesting fact: The Plague killed 75 million over some 450 odd years. But the Spanish Flu killed upwards of 100 million in one year alone.

Damn, Nature… You scary!
