    Absolutely, not just because of the virus but also the damage it is going to do economically worldwide.

    It will be seen as a major historical event in world history, alongside the World Wars and the Great Depression.

    It is likely to cause such economic damage that we will be living with its effects for a decade at least.

    Sorry.That is just the first thing that came to my mind.I am pretty sure this will go down in the history books of South America.And Asia as well.

    You do realise Italy has one of the worst death tolls due to this, right? And Spain? And they're saying the UK could catch up in a week. They're all in Europe.

    Interestingly enough my doctor and I were talking about this just yesterday. Talking about how our great grandchildren might be boasting that their great grandparents actually lived through the great "virus pandemic of 20," and how the President at the time, Dump, Rump, Slump or something like that, was eventually held responsible for contributing to thousands of unnecessary deaths in the country.

    A bit more seriously, hundreds of books and analyses will be written about it, and I expect a full chapter will be devoted to it in the many, many reviews of Trump that follow his reign. It could also end up as act III in the play. "The Eggo And LI."

    Sure. It is a significant event even if the outcome falls short of predictive models or not. It has had a major impact on society, economy, medicine, human relations and much more.

    As a JW, do you consider it a natural event or the work of Satan in collusion with any number of groups currently seen negatively by someone?

    Ignore her. She lives in some far away exotic land most folks have never heard about. Upstate Maine, I think.
