The Great Pandemic 1918-1919

The Great Pandemic 1918-1919 - This site has information on the flu pandemic of 1918. It includes details about life in 1918, a history of the pandemic, and biographies. It was created by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. This is a nicely done and informative site.

I am betting the current pandemic rumors will prove to be true to the levels of 1918. Or of that in Stephen King's The Stand. Unfortunately, the flu is deadly, it mutates, and flu pandemics are a regular part of human history.
