Station Eleven: Chapter 6 Summary & Analysis

This chapter consists only of “an incomplete list” of what is lost in the Georgia Flu. The list is used to show just how much the world was changed by the epidemic. The list spans from diving into swimming pools, cities, transportation, pharmaceuticals, planes, countries, all the way to the loss of the Internet and social media.
Mandel moves from the excess of dormant shipping containers to a list of what is lost: billions of lives and civilization as we know it. All the comforts of modernity, both large scale and small, are lost without the vast network of humans required to maintain them.
