I hope mainstream TV will be running documentaries on why this has all happened so people can be educated.
No chance, no one is interested.
For people who are interested in how pandemics work and how they can be prevented and controlled, the Netflix doco series Pandemic: How to Prevent an Outbreak is excellent (albeit not really ‘mainstream TV’). It first aired in January so it’s totally up-to-date and on-point. What’s interesting and scary about it is that it was being made before COVID19 was known and doesn’t specifically cover COVID19 - but predicts exactly what is happening now just a few weeks later.

TBH we’ve only watched E 1&2 so far - later episodes may get to Coronavirus - dunno at this stage.
