Even with the biological attacks one has no concept of the scale of the area that was affected. Headlines with rising death tolls are just numbers, no scope to judge them on.
This is where BNT came in - people were shown the aftermath of this horrible virus, and believed it all without a doubt. That's the whole point of the movie, no one felt the need for a brief glimpse, they were a bunch of sheep. As for struggling, apparently butter was rare
