100 years of influenza

1 month 1 week
by Nina Cromeyer Dieke

In 1918, as the world sighed in relief from war,  a deadly virus infected around 40% of the planet’s population. Spanish flu mortality estimates range from 20-50 million, more than the death toll of WW1 itself (17 million). The flu didn’t originate in Spain or have anything particularly Spanish about it. Wartime censorship prevented the press in warring countries from printing anything that undermined the war effort. However, in neutral Spain, the papers reported on the flu in May 1918, and it ramped up after Spanish King Alfonso XIII himself contracted the virus.
