    calming of the population

    Hello everyone,

    I'd like to ask you to help me with one of the sentences from my paper:

    "Such vaccines against influenza were not used due to rapid termination of the epidemics and calming of the population"

    I have some doubts about the word "calming". Do you find the sentence fine? I was also thinking about "quieting" or "soothing" instead. What do you think?

    Thanks

    "Calming" works fine but I would put "the" before it.

    What about "the" before "rapid termination"?

    Not needed in my opinion. But it would not be wrong.
