I’m afraid it wouldn’t make a dent in our population .

The 30million is just from the disease alone.
You have to then take into consideration of 2nd and 3rd order effects.
If there is a bug out there nasty enough, scary enough, and society shuts down, that alone could outstrip the dead from the disease alone.
Look at the lengths we went to when Ebola made it to the US. And that was just one guy.

We are not prepared. As a country we seem to be reactive instead of proactive. Given the ease of global travel, it would not take much to carry an infection into a population with zero resistance.

CB hit on something that is not often figured in when discussing some lethal pandemic illness. If 30 million are believed to become fatalities, it would seem that millions more would become ill but survive. A fatality rate of 50% would mean 60 million became ill. Service providers we all depend upon would be ill and many services would be severely curtailed or even unavailable. Schools would close, meaning parents would have to find some way to care for at-home children AND work. Almost an impossible task. Large gatherings would cease to happen. We would have the sick, those caring for the sick likely at home because healthcare facilities would be overrun, and those too afraid to venture out for fear of becoming sick. Society would be turned on its head.

And, here we are.

It’s not nice to brag about how you plan on cutting the population, Billy.
