The Vulnerability of Humanity
One of the things so obviously highlighted by this virus is the vulnerability of human life on this planet This is a virus that kills about 0.3 % of the people it contaminates, depending on whose figures you take and yet it is capable of bringing the world to a halt.
The Bubonic plague apparently had a mortality rate of 10% of the people who got it assuming that they had treatment. For people who were not treated the mortality rate was estimated to be 30-90%.
How would something like that affect us?
Or perhaps a fairly large asteroid hitting the earth? Smaller ones do hit us. This is not science fiction.
Humanity is vulnerable to global warming and over population
It’s about time we stopped squabbling and spent more time and money looking after the planet, our home. If we don’t who else will?
We have a collective responsibility
