It Has Happened Before: Remember the 1918 Pandemic

This isn't the first time we've seen something like COVID-19. (The Seattle Daily Times)

How can I say that with such assurance? Because I read history, and I know we're not the only generation to endure a pandemic. The world has survived dozens of plagues including the Black Death (which killed an estimated 60 million), the smallpox outbreak of 1520, the yellow fever outbreak of the late 1800s, the "Third Plague" of 1855 and the notorious Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-1919.

The Spanish flu killed between 40 to 50 million people globally, or about 4% of the world's population at that time. The fatalities included an estimated 675,000 Americans. Here are a few facts about that plague, in case you were asleep when it was discussed in history class: read more
