On the contrary I don't think the 90% death figure would make a good case for the Aztecs having a 'Great society's. The worst plague I know of was the black death and that killed about a third of the people in northern Europe. Their medical understanding and their sanitation was horrible...but at least they figured out how to do simple things like quarantine. If Mexicans managed to lose 90% of their people to a plague then they must be very stupid.

Damn. History fail. Epidemiology fail.
Does this person think the Europeans did something that mitigated the death rate from yersinea pestis, or are they being disingenuous?

Doubting Thomas

Death tolls from plagues have many factors. You can't say that one group was less intelligent because they suffered more deaths. But of course since they had brown skin that makes it easy for you, doesn't it?

And what good would a quarantine have done during the Black Plague since it was carried by fleas on rodents? Unless you can quarantine the rodents it's still going to spread.
