    Default The Timeliness of Albert Camus’ “The Plague”

    https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/05...us-the-plague/

    We live in dangerous times! The number of people who have been infected and died from the Coronavirus Pandemic proves it. Our America is running at half-speed at the moment.

    As of today, over 80,000 deaths, and 1.3 million inflections have been reported by the authorities. The comments about the lethal virus have run from the absurd to the profound. Meanwhile, we’re just hearing about yet another plague: People in Hong Kong are becoming ill with “rat hepatitis” for the first time ever.
    The plot of “The Plague” goes like this: Rats become infected and then fleas spread the disease to other animals and eventually to humans. The residents of Oran are trapped- quarantined. They are slowly dying off, more and more of them every day. They can’t get out and no one else is allowed in. The plague continues to run rampant, bringing death and widespread misery. A feeling of isolation and hopelessly engulfs the psyches of the peoples of Oran.
    Interesting article
