I've been watching medieval scholar Dorsey Armstrong's 24-part lecture series "The Black Death: The World's Most Devastating Plague (2016). She really does a great job of describing the medical, political, economic, religious, social and cultural impacts of the bubonic plague--an epidemic that killed as much as 40-60% of Europe's population. It was a different time and a far more deadly disease than Covid-19, but there is much relevant food for thought here. It certainly leaves me wondering more about the possible long-term effects of our current situation.
