In 2017, a mad scientist (let's call him Brad) creates a chimera virus. This virus is not lethal. It was designed by Brad to deteriorate and darken the skin and trigger the loss of 100% of body hair. This plague is named TRP405. By the time the disease is discovered, 95% of the human population is infected and symptoms have started to manifest. Assume a cure cannot be quickly found. Now everyone is ugly. How would the world react?
What would happen to...
- narcissistic people?
- to the few people not infected who still look normal?
- to the beauty industry?
Also, are people who are already ugly before the virus happy in this new era?
Keep in mind that my virus does not harm the human body outside of symptoms.
