There will be no number of deaths possible to collapse civilization...
In today’s age such things will only be tolerated while they are profitable for fellows like Rothschild...
When it threatens profitability the solution to any problem will be swiftly implemented...
If one randomly chosen extra person were to die each second somewhere on Earth, what impact would it have on the world population?

I agree the number of affected people required to shift the tipping point, is much lower than we think.
In the average home, one person taking ill affects the entire household, so it is not just one person that is removed from their normal schedule.
I agree. Just think about how many single Mom households there are in the U.S. alone. If the Mom dies, who will care for the children? In a household with Dad, Mom and kids, if the main breadwinner dies, what becomes of the rest of the family? How long does it take for a business to collapse when the owner dies? I'm guessing not long.
The Domino Effect could be quite great. with other side-effects.....more people becoming homeless, joblessness, even suicides. If this gets out of control the side-effects could be unimaginable. But let's hope that doesn't happen! I think most first world countries could have a different outcome than China just because we are less crowded, eat food differently and have better sanitation.
Sorry I have to admit I love doom-porn!! Best to ALL of the World!!
One person being severely ill or dying, can impact quite a large number of people and factors.
I just got a text message asking for volunteers to change their schedule because the spouse of one of my co-workers is headed to hospital after a freak accident.
On the surface it seems like a small problem but we are already 3 people short. We have 4 brand new employees that are not ready to fly on their own without adequate support, and a new inexperienced Director. This may cause a operational shut down for a brief spell.
That is just because of one person and a situation that was not expected. Make that 10 people and you can see how things can expotenially go haywire.

I'm gonna say that what if the Wu Flu contaminated the hospital and the doctors and staff started dying off.
No one to take care of the sick.
Then the dominos will fall
