31 people dead from plague outbreak in DRC, say health officials
At last, a real plague.
Not this faux-plague of Covid-19.
Maybe this time we can look forward to horse-drawn carts telling us to Bring Out Your Dead, and mass graves, and deserted depopulated villages.
Something that kills off half the population, not less than 1% of it.
A proper plague. A new Black Death.
With luck it’ll be the end of not just Covid-19, but also Global Warming and Climate Change and asteroid impacts and obesity epidemics and smoking bans, and all the other fake emergencies, as for once a real menace stalks the land.
They’ve been crying wolf for so long that it’s about time a real wolf appeared.
It will be something refreshing.
Except that it’ll probably turn out just like Covid-19, with mass vaccinations and lockdowns, and hardly anyone will die. It’ll be the same as it ever was.
It’ll be yet another false alarm.
