In some ways, sure. In others, no.

For instance, during the plague, nobody actually knew what was going on - so people were quarantined and killed out of fear. Much the same way Reagan supported ostracizing gay men when AIIDS became prevalent.

On the other hand, the plague was spread with rats and insects. The modern scare has been disease originated with birds but spread from human to human.

yersinia pestis is spread by fleas which in turn are borne by wats

No the black death caused a horribly grotesque death and killed about 2/3's of Europe's population (I think)

in that they spread rapidly and kill many people, yes,
otherwise, no.
aids is spread through the transfer of bodily fluids. the plague was spread by fleas of rats,
aids affects only those who are not monogamous , virgins til marriage and faithful to their mates( with rare exceptions in the case of infants infected in utero and people infected through transfusions of tainted blood products.)
the plague affected just about everybody.


G'hound
Similar in a very worrying way in the earlier days of AIDS when it seemed like nothing could stop it.
Different in in the way they work, the plague is a heamhorragic kind of fever, similar to Ebola.


Couman
Bubonic plague is similar to the modern disease called... bubonic plague. Yes it's still around, but with modern medicine it's rarely fatal.


i_was_myself
They aren't similar at all today. First of all the bubonic plague still exists. Second it doesn't spread because medical authorities pounce on all outbreaks of diseases. It is actually not as deadly as its reputation has it with treatment.

Good suggestions of better diseases to focus comparisons on are malaria, TB, and the common flu. Those three are responsible more more AIDS deaths than any other disease. And medical services are barely able to control the spread of them.
