Annalisa Merelli delivers a powerful message about the way that history often repeats itself: unfortunately, the way that the world has handled mass epidemics has often resulted in the spread of racism and classism, and the effects last well beyond the concern about the virus itself.

Viruses have one goal in life: To keep spreading. They don't necessarily WANT to make hosts super sick, because in a way, that limits the number of hosts they'll interact with. It's fascinating that they've adapted to spread even once out immune systems have got them in check.

We've all been duped by Big Carrot since WWII.
