Discover the remarkable history of the Spanish Flu....
The 1918 outbreak of the H1N1 strain of influenza, popularly known as the Spanish flu, killed more people worldwide than World War I, which ended the same year. It infected nearly one-third of the world's population and killed 10 percent of those it struck. In its wake, schools and businesses closed, hospitals became overwhelmed, and the sick spilled out into makeshift care centers in public spaces. Policemen, public transportation workers, and everyday citizens in face masks were a common - and eerie - sight. Yet, discussion of this global pandemic often takes a backseat to World War I and other contemporary events.
In this book, we revisit this terrifying time that left the world in fear.
