Where do you live that it's not an immediate threat? Here, locally, literally millions of people are having having there life disrupted as schools are closed, almost any social gathering site is closed, restaurants, when allowed open, are take-out only, and a generally grass-root-to-ceiling effort to slow the inevitable progress to a manageable rate. Family gatherings are, to a huge extent, being cancelled. Churches and synagogues are closing - damn - even Mecca was closed down for a while.

Not an immediate threat?   The only difference between this and the plane is the virus takes a week or so to kill you. The treat - becoming infected - is immediate.

Third world lives are not worth less than those in the industrial world - and neither are they worth more.
