How many people died worldwide from the Black Death? ?

I keep searching it up and looking on websites but it only shows the death count in Europe which is around 20 million people.

    Possibly 200 million, globally.   Estimates for the European death toll have been revised upwards.

    The Black Death (also known as the Pestilence, the Great Mortality, or the Plague) was the deadliest pandemic recorded in human history. The Black Death resulted in the deaths of up to 75–200 million people in Eurasia and North Africa, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351.

    Disease: Bubonic plague

    Deaths: 75,000,000 – 200,000,000 (estimate)

    Location: Eurasia, parts of Africa

    Date: 1346–1353

    In the 14th century there only was Europe who would have been keeping records and even then not in any organized way. Not much was known about most of Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and nothing at all about the New World. With no contact to those areas it is assumed there would have been no infection.  The global tally could have been from 75m to as high as 200 million, but is generally reckoned at somewhere about half the population of Europe and those countries with access to major trading routes such as the Silk Road.
