The Spanish Flu went on for close to two years, and that’s probably what it will take to get us through as well. We’re 4 months into this. If you want to quibble about whether or not this is a plague, I suggest you go speak to the hospital staff in any major metropolitan area.

This is a once-in-a-hundred years epidemic. That qualifies as a plague in my book.
