Default Why Was Nothing Done During the swine Flu Pandemic?

Why is everything shutting down over the coronavirus? Why is there so much panic? I only ask because I do not remember a damn thing closing down during the swine flu pandemic. It was business as usual while thousands of people died. The swine flu was most dangerous/deadly to people in their 30's/40's, it spared the older folks but again nobody went into freak out mode. I DON'T UNDERSTAND

We lost lives unnecessarily during the last pandemic by keeping it low key to avoid economic panic and learned from it. That is why they are educating and using more caution this go-round.

We got a vaccine within a few months and no one was prepared for the pandemic. This time we are acting faster (maybe not even fast enough).

There was. I remember standing in a long line with several hundred people trying to get my then toddler vacinated. I remember the county was in charge of doing the vaxes and he had to have two like a month apart.
