    I think it all goes back to what most Farmers know.

    If you overstock your paddocks, you’ll have health problems with your stock.

    The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    First pandemic

    The first recorded epidemic affected the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantine Empire) and was named the Plague of Justinian after emperor Justinian I, who was infected but survived through extensive treatment

    Second pandemic

    In the Late Middle Ages (1340–1400) Chinese records also showed a huge outbreak in Mongolia in the early 1330s.[32] Research published in 2002 suggests that it began in early 1346 in the steppe region, where a plague reservoir stretches from the northwestern shore of the Caspian Sea into southern Russia. The Mongols had cut off the trade route, the Silk Road, between China and Europe which halted the spread of the Black Death from eastern Russia to Western Europe. The epidemic began with an attack that Mongols launched on the Italian merchants' last trading station in the region, Caffa in the Crimea.

    Third pandemic
    The plague resurfaced for a third time in the mid-19th century. This one also originated in Eastern Asia, most likely in Yunnan Province of China

    or the possible Bronzeage one, but we'll never know, only that organisms were found then too.

    Now, people in the US have had it too, recently.
