Interesting article. Thank you. The main difference is 10 years have passed and the general health of Americans has continued to decline. Plus more young people will contract this because of the new vaping they've been doing for...what...at least 5 years now.
Also, the emotional and mental stress of how this is being treated IMO will cause more to get sick than would if these extreme measures were not being taken.
Staying inside, eating junk (some not all) and being inactive, worried about money and their jobs is the worst thing for a person's heatlh.
Rest assured, I will stay away for those you mention who are in compromised health but they won't be out and about anyhow.
