Have been reading about the reign of Marcus Aurelius in the 2nd century AD. During his reign, the plague came to Rome from the East, brought back by Roman soldiers. It was devastating to the city. But it didn’t just go away after a year. The ominous note that I read was that it lingered for many years, and now and then came back with a vengeance.
I wonder if that’s going to be our fate as well? It’s a bit of an assumption that this virus doesn’t have staying power.
