We live in a DigiComArts or Digital Communication Arts World. Communication technology is all over and thank goodness for that. If we did not have the technology we now have, the Coronavirus would have an extra level of stress. How would we find out about updates? How would we communicate with others?
The Spanish Flu
Compared to the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic, Covid-19 may ultimately prove to be worse. 500 million people all over the world were affected by the Spanish flu. The fatality rate is estimated for the Spanish Flu to have been about 2 percent.
The percentage of deaths of those caused by the Coronavirus are said to be about 5%. In the United States it is estimated to be under 3%. Again, thank goodness we have the means of communication that were not available in 1912. DigiComArts refers to technology in the arts but these same techniques are in common usage for reaching out to others. This same technology allows for staying fashionable even as the death toll rises.
