Oh shit should've finished the thread first, self kontra
I know even here it might be unpopular due to anti-oldmedia mouthbreathers but you should check out the US news outlets like NBC on this. I really feel particularly bad for our medical personnel, who have to first deal with death threats by Qtards who think they're "in on it" to "spread plandemic propaganda against Trump" and then have to see the same coofers in their ICU insisting they just have a flu because "Covid isn't real" while trying to not get pozzed themselves.
And thus ends the question I had developed over a year ago which is what it would look like for me to go back in time to the plague and try to instruct these superstitious peasant bydlo on what infectious disease is and how to cure themselves, which at the time I'd concluded my only option would be to risk running afoul of the Pope as I told them to take a special euacharist blessed by God Himself which was actually just penicillin infused bread not legitimate Jesus biscuits. The interesting thing is how inadequate to downright aggressively counterproductive the authorities usually are in every epidemic stretching back to antiquity. There's some great docus on the "Spanish" Flu and one of the interesting things is how hard Philadelphia got utterly fucked because they held a huge parade with politicians actively working contrary to itself inadequate health advice (but still accurate policy) and with dumbasses even 102 years ago arguing against masks.
I've come to truly loathe a couple of phrases this pandemic and one of them is "the disease that causes COVID19" which only confused the public more (because it's all fucking SARS-COV-2 COVID19 was just Chinese arse licking because they didn't want to "overly frighten people by using the word SARS" which itself I've grown to hate "we don't want anyone to panic") and "this is unprecedented." Unprecedented means there is no precedent, that it is novel. Not a single damn thing about the situation is novel. We literally had the precedent 102 years ago. There are people still alive today who remember it. The problem is 90% of humanity are complete ahistorical medically and policy incompetent dumbasses.
