AIDS and the Black Death. Two different diseases, but in reality, how closely are they  realted? Today, both would be defined as an epidemic.

Approximatley 10 people a minute are infected with HIV/AIDS. Last year alone, 3.1 million people died from AIDS worldwide. The bubonic plague at its peak, killed about 400 people daily. By the time the disease plateaued, 1/3 of Europe's population had died, which translates to approximatley 20 million people.
