A ‘view of Ludgate on fire.’ Artist Jan Griffier. Engraver William Birch, 1792. Why did the plague disappear at the end of 1665? Were the survivors immune? Was there a change in climate? Improved sanitation? The black rat, carrier of the plague flea, declined in numbers and was replaced by the brown rat. Did the Great Fire of September 1666 destroy the plague? It seems unlikely as the plague had disappeared months before the fire.
