Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918

  • Description

    A 2005 estimate put the death toll at probably 50 million (less than 3% of the global population), and possibly as high as 100 million (more than 5%). The disease killed in every area of the globe. As many as 12-17 million people died in India, about 5% of the population -- Wikipedia ---------------- "It is likely that the 1918 flu originated in China and spread when 96,000 Chinese labourers were mobilized to enhance the Allied effort during the war." --Leanodo Newtonic.
