October Madness: Can Flying Corpses Carry Plague?

Welcome, ghouls!

After coming across multiple articles claiming that the Tartar Army hurled plague-infected dead bodies over the wall of Kaffa in 1347, which resulted in the Genoese contracting and eventually bringing the plague to Europe, it got me thinking.

We're going to answer the age-old question, Can a flying corpse distribute the plague?

This episode is gruesome! LISTENERS DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED
