The media focus mostly on major markets where consumers are concentrated, where they have offices and where their reporters and editors live and work. But the epidemic is, if anything,more dangerous and difficult to deal with rural areas. The main problem is simply lack of resources. Many rural hospitals have closed in recent years. There aren't enough beds or doctors and they are too far away for many people.Many outbreaks in rural areas and small cities in less populous  regions have already occurred. These include Chambers County, Alabama; Dougherty County, Georgia; and the Shreveport, Louisiana area just for start...

Please don't get me wrong. I've seen other people try to put our present crisis in context, or discuss the costs vs. the benefits of certain actions, and be widely condemned for insensitivity or even sociopathy. I remember after the 9/11 attack, when people who tried to explain the motivations or sociological origins of Al Qaeda and similar movements faced the same sort of criticism.
