Problem is there is: so many depending on what era and location that you are referring to. In the medieval times, it was bluebonic plague in Europe. In the early 1900's it was the plague causing encephalitis. In the 1980's, it would have been AIDS, but not now. Last year, it was Ebola and other viruses. So, you may have to narrow it down to location, date, and 'worst in what way' to get the best answer. Good luck!
