Many people get sick. Many people die in their 40’s and 50’s. At the hospital, my cousin discusses the Kuefels, an entire family down the street, who are now ghosts. They are wiped out.
I do not know what life is like in other countries. People here seem, the most accident prone, and they are prone to illness. The Flu is ravaging people now, and there are many other illnesses. Hepatitis C, and even worse illnesses.
