Over the history of humanity, pandemics have come and gone. From bubonic plague to smallpox to yellow fever to HIV to coronavirus, humans have had to deal with the consequences of infectious diseases that have ravaged civilizations around the world. The severity of each pandemic has varied, from the worst plagues (1347-1351) killing hundreds of millions to SARS (2002-2003) killing approximately 774 people. In August 2020, COVID had caused nearly 800,000 deaths worldwide.
