1. It did surprise me that history repeated itself in this area.

After all, in 1918 it was just a hunch that these measures would work. We now have extensive knowledge of how disease develops from viruses and bacteria. Sanitization is as easy as walking to the closest sink with running water and soap, or alcohol wipes/hand gel in a pinch. We have protective masks made of materials that give orders of magnitude more protection than anything available in 1918. All of these supplies and food can be ordered from our houses and delivered to our doors. New and updated information can be disseminated to the population instantly.

And yet, the same clusterfuck of denial, whining and stupidity has played out. There's got to be a psychological construct at work. I look forward to the books that will be written to analyze it.
