    "The Clade X simulation, created by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, shows how vulnerable the world is to the spread of a pandemic virus. "

    "Despite being a "moderately contagious" and "moderately lethal" virus, at the end of the day — 20 months in simulated time — the virus would have killed 150 million people. "


    "According to the scenario's creator, if efforts to create a vaccine continued to fail, a disease like that could kill 900 million, or more than 10% of the global population. "

    Old Geezer sez that he thinks a whole lot higher percentage of the world's population than feared are going to perish. It's just a matter of "when", not "if".
