Virus got me wondering about disease history here

This virus got me wondering what would have happened if the Hawaiians had been informed of the illness the pirates and foreigners/missionaries brought here over 100 years ago and all the deaths that were planned to weaken the monarchy.

The year is different, but humanity is the same. Hawaiians should be apologized to, along with Chinese and Japanese who were sent here as slaves/indentured workers for $1 a day to build the ditches. Have we no remorse, given this virus, to apologize for the past atrocities?
