Whats the point when people don't use the technology and understanding of the world to better themselves

Hi there's a highly transmissible cold like disease, you should avoid contact with non household members

WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CANT GOTO Chili's

And

Weren't Humans "healthier" 100 years ago? Yeah we didn't have modern science but how many fat unfit people were there?

What was the percentage of people who suffered from type 2 diabetes back in 1920 vs now?

The world back then had 1/4 of the people today, and much less movement outside your town. So I think purely number wise it would've been far less deaths globally than today
Even in the plague years, people move around - maybe mostly to get out of a plague area. Then you take the plague with you and infect a whole other area.
In the last big one, people resorted to felling trees over the road and restricting entry to certain areas. Of course, it didn't work.

How so? Both were novel viruses when they occurred with similar infection rates. Biggest difference is the mortality rate but that, in general, has dropped tremendously over the past 100 years across the board.
