In brief: That depends.

A human bite can cause tissue injury & infection.
A black widow spider bite may cause a minor reaction or a severe one. People rarely die from the bite of a black widow - but most deaths that do occur are in the elderly or in infants. So - there is no one -size fits all answer to this. Each human bite case & each black widow bite case are different.

In brief: Bite

Depends on the extent of the bite, your general health & status of your immune system, & your age.
