Pandemics are not new to humanity; neither is the response to isolate. During the Great Plague, people suspected of having the disease were barricaded in their homes. Social distancing and isolation have been consistent factors to prevent and contain the spread of disease. However, the ability to maintain social distancing in an overpopulated world, and to self-isolate when one feels ill, is nearly impossible because most populations within of the United States need to work to pay their bills. In 2018, more than 50% of the US population had less than $1,000 in their savings account (Huddleston, 2019).
