Well... It is official now. USA have the highest number of infections to date. China have it more or less under control now.

Re: Coronavirus chatter

Wait, wait... you are saying you expect an epidemic should bring peace and solve environmental issues? No humans wouldn’t mean peace. The animal kingdom can be a very savage place. No more pollution? None by humans, we will leave that to natural disasters such as volcanos filling the entire …

Akira Ghost in the Shell 1, 2, and SAC. Along the same lines, I can recommend Dominion Tank Police (both 1988 & 1994 versions) - where humanity now lives with a cloud of toxic pollution in their everyday life and wearing a breathing mask outdoors is necessary :D Interesting there's a global crisis …
