Interesting story and characters. But if the world had over 90 % of the population die of the flu , the smell would be horrendous and there would be more dead bodies found. Just imagine all the rotting corpses and all the food going bad in the houses without electricity. It's as though we are taking a nice trip to the country every week. Even the houses in the country are well manicured and the landscaping well maintained. You don't even see any garbage in the street.
