Post The shape of things to come - a note re. starvation
As ever, humankind will beat this pandemic - but this particular one at this juncture in digital modernity will indeed catalyze and presage a 'brave new world.'

In the case of the upcoming Killshot sequence, most deaths will be the result of starvation. Secondarily, rapine & murder.

Verily, there are many, many historic poignant lessons re. the dire effects of starvation - in both 'developed' and 'underdeveloped' nations.

Here's just one (arguably extreme) example from only a couple of generations back:

Pleasant dreams, RV troopers! Our collective dystopian future is only a heartbeat away...
