Something unknown whacked the Maya civilization back in the day.
One by one, their cities were abandoned, and by A.D. 900 the Maya civilization was gone, disappeared, vamoosed off to feed the fishes.

One by one they will be abandoned as variations of the Corona viruses come back, year after year, to wipe out the tightly packed city dwellers.

Rome was once the template for the modern metropolis. But it to was virtually abandoned. The population falling from over a million to around 50,000. War, hunger, or pandemics, who knows?
We’ll soon be looking forward to escaping our straight-jacket cement prisons and heading for the sea or the mountains. I believe this will be the thought of all those, who have the means, to get away from the virus infested concrete jungles that our great megalopolis have become.
Food does not seem to be a problem during this world wide lock-down. Staying sane is.
Bingeing on Netflix will not solve this. Yes, we can go online and learn something new.
