You are right about the need to self isolate etc. and that it will all take longer than most people seem to think. But have not taken into account the much better hygene practices of most people today, over the lack of hygene practices of people back in the times of the Black Death. As I am sure few of us share our houses with wild rats on a daily basis as many did back then.

It's extremely scary.. And by far, the biggest problem, is ALL the people who are refusing to do the right thing!!
I'm finding that people between the ages of 17-35 aren't taking this virus as seriously as they should be. These seem to be the ones breaking the rules-going out still, lack of social distancing, disregarding the rules altogether. And they seem to think that the media...
