Athenian Plague Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
According to multiple inside sources after the retreat of the Athenians into the walls of Athens, a plague broke out. It is believed to be a plague called Typhus. Those who are currently being affected are dying at a fast rate and those who are still healthy are advised to stay away until the plague diminishes. It is a horrible tragedy for the people of Athens, and no one wishes for any more deaths of his fellow men and women. However, the advisement is to stay away in order to keep the rest of the population safe and healthy. Instead stay inside where it is safe and plague-free.

Though the Peloponnesian war is still going, everyone who is not fighting or dying must stay inside and stay healthy. Who will run Athens if no one is left alive?
