In 1466, perhaps 40,000 people died of plague in Paris.[74] During the 16th and 17th centuries, plague visited Paris for almost one year out of three.[75] The Black Death ravaged Europe for three years before it continued on into Russia, where the disease hit somewhere once every five or six years from 1350 to 1490.[76] Plague epidemics ravaged London in 1563, 1593, 1603, 1625, 1636, and 1665,[77] reducing its population by 10 to 30% during those years.[78] Over 10% of Amsterdam's population died in 1623–1625, and again in 1635–1636, 1655, and 1664.[79] There were 22 outbreaks of plague in Venice between 1361 and 1528.[80] The plague of 1576–1577 killed 50,000 in Venice, almost a third of the population.[81] Late outbreaks in central Europe included the Italian Plague of 1629–1631, which is associated with troop movements during the Thirty Years' War, and the Great Plague of Vienna in 1679. Over 60% of Norway's population died from 1348 to 1350.[82] The last plague outbreak ravaged Oslo in 1654.[83]

In the first half of the 17th century, a plague claimed some 1.7 million victims in Italy, or about 14% of the population.[84] In 1656, the plague killed about half of Naples' 300,000 inhabitants.[85] More than 1.25 million deaths resulted from the extreme incidence of plague in 17th-century Spain.[86] The plague of 1649 probably reduced the population of Seville by half.[87] In 1709–1713, a plague epidemic that followed the Great Northern War (1700–1721, Sweden v. Russia and allies)[88] killed about 100,000 in Sweden,[89] and 300,000 in Prussia.[87] The plague killed two-thirds of the inhabitants of Helsinki,[90] and claimed a third of Stockholm's population.[91] Europe's last major epidemic occurred in 1720 in Marseilles.[82]

If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do. The smallest act of kindness can be the greatest thing in the world.
