    Superstition, Ignorance and Deception in the Plagues of the Past and Present

    “False Knowledge is more dangerous than ignorance.” G.B. Shaw

    The tour will touch upon The Black Death, Small Pox, Yellow Fever and the Spanish Flu. We’ll discuss how these diseases were spread and the treatments that were used in those times.

    The tour highlights the misconceptions and prejudices that existed. Also, reveals the role that intentional deception played in propelling the spread and accelerating deaths.
