Wild Card's description: 

There would not only be a huge financial and societal impact but also a “backlash” against science’s failure to prevent the deaths. There could be an initial boost in vaccines and immunology research, but then the research base itself could be depleted and large scale societal unrest coupled with financial problems will have significant impact. Mass deaths could lead to a breakdown of trust in science damaging the science base.
