    When some projections were done, they were scary. Right after those were done, gov started sheltering in places where it showed up.

    Unabated, the numbers would be much higher, I think.

    It's already way too many.

    If they have time a comparative graph showing progress in the efforts made may help people see the difference made.

    Probably.

    The world population is immensely larger now.

    Probably.  It won't kill a third of the population of Europe, but a third of the population of Europe back then was 22 million.  It's easily foreseeable that the world could see more than 22 million people die from COVID-19, which would be 0.3% of the present world population.  Proportionally, Spanish flu killed 10 times that in 1918, and COVID-19 is far more contagious and virulent than Spanish flu.

    No, not really.
