Coronavirus outbrake impact on PINE64
#64
By class yes, in the sense that it costs money to get away from people.  Packed like rats into cities with nobody believing in quarantines and social distancing, it will spread like fire through a wood frame house.  It's mostly a problem in areas of high population density.

In parts of the US where population density is low there's almost no problem.  Not everyone in rural areas is rich by any means.  Some people prefer cities, I don't, my nearest neighbors are 1/4 mile (0.4 k m) away.  There are no jobs here unless you invent them or commute an hour.  No apartments.  No internet.  It takes work to maintain a vehicle so you can drive somewhere else for a job.  I grew up here.

The original map is at https://datawrapper.dwcdn.net/nRyaf/15/ but it doesn't always work on bad internet.  You can hover your mouse over a spot and read the numbers of cases.  It's from the Associated Press.

But this is a situation we've created ourselves, much like global warming.  We can change it, we just have to all be on the same page in understanding it.  The virus will die when it can't infect anybody.  China's leaders finally understood that, it's slowly catching on elsewhere.
