how many people died from disease during the 1800's?

For a start there will no records anywhere which can tell you these figures....are you talking about UK or worldwide....there were no antibiotics to speak of in the early 1800's nor were there immunisation, so a lot of diseases we can immunise against today such as measles, smallpox, diphtheria etc used to kill thousands of people....TB was a major killer which today is rare condition....so your question can't really be answered other than to say that many diseases were fatal back then.

millions. Due to lack of hygiene and medications.

I think it's impossible to answer your question, because figures weren't collated during the 19th century in the same way as they are now. Additionally, as well as those who died from diseases such as TB, Cholera and Typhoid, whilst at home, there were thousands who died from disease whilst away fighting wars. To give you some idea, the first link below will take you to a site that details deaths during battles in the 19th century; they also include deaths from disease, some incurred as a result of injuries. And the second site will show you just how many diseases were prevalent at that time in history.

cant count!!!!!!!!!!

Why do people ask these questions that CAN NOT BE ANSWERED? There were few records kept then and, you didn't even say WHAT COUNTRY... there is more than ONE you know.!

Too many i supect, and are you talking world wide, UK, where, and probably a question that cannot be answered.

wow what a vague question we don't really even know what you're asking so it can't be answered. try being more specific

14 people

oh you are making me dust the cob webs from my brain

at the turn of the century, only 6 diseases could be cured. the morality rate currently (with malaria drugs) is about 1.6 million world wide. (remember we have drugs now to prevent this disease.

musca domestica (filth flies) kill more people than do mosquitos by moving diseases to people that otherwise would not be exposed.

illness like flu have devistated the populations in times past along with plague and other things.

the number of people who died in the 1800s from disease was vast, and i do not believe we will ever know how many world wide. Specific populations of developed countries like england and the netherlands might be available but in the americas which was still expanding without a stable infrastructure to maintain records, our numbers are not known.

malaria in this country was not taken care of until recenly in our past. We still have other viral killers carried by mosquitos that make appearances from time to time, equine encephilites is/can be fatal for example.

if someone gives you a set number they are lying

email if need some help with this for school

almost all of them.
