<div>The Spanish Flu was a pandemic in 1918 that infected 500 million people worldwide. Around 30-50 million people died from this Influenza. No flu vaccine existed in 1918 (that actually worked). And now with the world being so connected Scientists say the world is overdue for an Influenza pandemic. This just shows us that if the Spanish Influenza does come back we're into some trouble.</div> The Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the deadliest in history, infected an estimated 500 million people worldwide—about one-third of the planet’s population—and
<div>Article 1: Pandemic close to the Spanish Influenza may happen again scientists are warning. Scientists used a reverse genetic method to create a virus differing from the Spanish Flu virus by 3% in its terms of acids that produce virus proteins. They found seven transmissions in three viral genetics allowing the flu to pass through as effectively as the Flu of 1918, which means all the ingredients are there for a potential deadly pandemic. </div><div>Article 2: The Spanish Influenza mostly infected the young, healthy citizens. If it had not of come during World War 1 it would have (likely) stayed in Fort riley, Kansas but considering the soldiers were travelling around the US and other countries across the ocean it infected citizens in Spain, China, Australia, and more. Scientists say we are in a better position for the Spanish Flu now, then they were in 1918. </div> Current strains of bird flu have genetic ingredients needed for pandemic akin to 1918 flu outbreak.
<div>I chose this picture as my background because, it shows were the Spanish flu began and where it died off. It shows that a new pandemic of this flu or another flu could spread all over the world just like this one did. Which is a crazy thought, considering we are overdue for a flu pandemic. </div> The Spanish Influenza was a virus that infected and killed millions of people all around the world.  It’s estimated that it spread to and killed around about 3 – 5 % of the world’s population...
<div>My video goes with the novel because if the Spanish Flu ever does come back youĺl need to know the facts. It explains why so many people died, and that no vaccine existed so if it were to happen nowadays we would be more likely or less likely to survive. We would spread it (theoretically) faster since we travel more and we could probably find a cure unlike in 1918.</div> A Death-Struck Year
