Now, let's eradicate it (the pandemic, not Steam) from Earth and we should be fine. Or maybe not fine but at least a bit better.
Not possible. If anything we got lucky with COVID.
Highly suggest everyone listens to How To Survive a Pandemic by Micheal Greger. It is an eye opening compilation of public statements made by WHO and CDC officials.
They're predicting billions of deaths, before a vaccine is created.
Between factory farming, wet markets and exotic meat, it's "a question of when, not if"
I'm honestly surprised that we are all still here after listening to it lol - scary AF
Mass culling from time to time are not only good, they're necessary. The Black Death, for example, is what allowed us to move out of serfdom and create an upwardly mobile society, mass education, etc. As the old saying goes, in every cloud there's a silver lining. There's just way too many people on this rock and it's getting worse by the minute.
Are you volunteering then? Lol
That's the problem with infectious diseases, it's a little bit too random and it could.be me or you that gets "culled"
And there's no off switch. You'd want to have a back up copy of the human species on a space station like in Moonraker or on Mars like Musk suggests.
