People stop looking at math equations regarding deaths by understood threats to the human. This Pandemic is an educational quest to the understanding of an unknown threat that has haunted humankind for decades.
I suggest all study the Spanish flu. A 1918 influenza killed between 50-100 million people. In other words, between 3% and 5% of the world’s population died. In the United States, 675,000 people died.
As you think about that, think about this.
In 1918 we did not have airplanes moving millions of people a day around the world; we did not have highway systems, horses outnumbered the automobile, and most people rarely went more than 50 miles from their house their entire life.
The prudent actions are called leadership. Mitigating risk by what you know enables time to explore what’s unknown. Let’s work together and protect both our home and work families.
This will pass, and the world will learn from what today’s leaders do. The world is poised for another pandemic, and this Pandemic will teach the world, and remember, today’s world is much more mobile than it was in 1918.
Stay Safe and be Responsible.
