How a major outbreak of the disease can affect the government?

Since a government runs the country then maybe it could affect them. They would have to deal with the whole country out-breaking with a major deadly disease. No one would wanna eat the food and then it'll end in a hungry country.


Blue-bell is a MAJOR ice cream producing company. When you buy ice cream you usually buy blue bell right? Well since you cant buy blue bell because they are off the shelves..... Blue bell makes no profit. And since they make no money the government is sad. All it takes is a epidemic.
