Sunderland Deadly Diseases

I think I need to make another after all this.
Without a doubt.
Flu was the biggest killer then, even above the plague?
I wonder if the coronavirus will topple that!

This pandemic has to end in some way but maybe it will become seasonal like the flu.

We'll just keep shutting down until we can't afford it anymore

This virus is a bit of a dumb one because it is killing it's host.
It will learn to become a "good parasite" and we will have to live with it like all the others so long may it mutate in a "good way".
Of course it might mutate the other way which would become a nightmare and a half.

How would a simple organism such as a virus learn how to be kind to it's host :headscratch:

Errrrr, a virus is not a simple organism.
An amoeba is a simple organism.
Are you sure you meant organism :mrgreen:
