Great explanation--and I think this was the most important point when it comes to these cancellations:
".....But what they fail to see is the underlying genetics of it all. When there are more hosts available, you have many more copies being made, and many more mutations being added to the virus. Due to sheer numbers of infected a mass outbreaks can actually increase virulence of a virus (we have evidence of this truth explained below). Even the most virulent strains can survive if there is a large availability of hosts thus it can keep it going in big outbreaks. However if you cut off available hosts the most virulent strains will die out, and only the less virulent strains are around long enough to infect another host"
Great stuff. Keeping the numbers from spiking will help get the virus under control, plus it can stop a massive flooding of medical facilities.
