The other day I came across this SciShow video from a couple of years ago — no shock to learn that governments haven’t learned the lesson.
Of course by now, we are more familiar with the 1918 Pandemic (depending on your preferred sources of valid information).
And so they say that the mortality rate worldwide from the flu is 0.1% annually.
If my maths are correct, Covid-19 is tracking about 4.4%.
That is just gut wenching.
To your families and friends, please be safe.
