Thanks. Found another estimate at 50 million.

Clearly, no one knows ;-). But I think the point is absolutely valid that the Black Death was way worse than COVID-19.

But if it really was 200 million, I mean, the estimated world population in the mid-1300s was under 500 million (probably every bit as accurate on the numbers). So 200 million might be more than 40% of the world population.
