Share of total deaths due to bubonic plague in London 1603-1680

For most years between 1603 and 1680, plague was responsible for less than one percent of all deaths in London. However, when epidemics did break out they could often be responsible for more than half of all deaths in the city during those years, even going as high as 86 percent in 1603. This was the highest share of deaths due to plague in London in the given time period, although the final epidemic shown in the graph is remembered as the most devastating, taking almost 70,000 lives during the Great Plague of London in 1665.
