Isn't it a fact that at a somewhat later period than l000 CE, about when
Europeans began to explore (invade?) the so-called
New World, when Europe began to experience the plagues, the New World
civilizations in Mexico, Central and South America had no plagues, and
that the Europeans who came here at the time marveled at the cleanliness
they found in contrast to European conditions, like open sewers, etc.
