Daily Stoic shares a lesson we can all learn from history about this COVID Pandemic.

In 165 AD, Marcus Aurelius’ Roman Empire was hit with the Antonine Plague. Despite the distance of so many centuries, it’s eerily similar to Covid-19. It caused widespread panic, but Marcus Aurelius was a beacon of sanity and stability during these times. He made the people of his empire a priority as he did the best he could to deal with a pandemic that eventually killed between 10 and 18 million people in his empire.
