Spanish flu pandemic is one of the deadliest pandemics worldwide. It was the fastest mutated virus. No one really knows where this pandemic started but it spread all over the parts of the world far as Boston, Massachusetts to different parts of Europe. This disease killed 20 – 50 million. The origins started in Camp Funston, Kansas, China, U.K, France. No one really knew what this disease was most of the population just thought it was the common flu, they then quickly realized that this was so much more than the common flu this virus affected the respiratory system causing it to gradually slow your airways down until they finally suffocated you.Because  no one knew of the virus no one really had a cure, for it.  This pandemic was so bad it struck in three different waves (strains of the virus). Three hundred thousand Chinese laborers were in shipment to the U.S.A but, twenty five thousand of them got quarantined for having flu-like symptoms. Chinese workers were blamed for this pandemic because of the laborers having a lousy work ethic. This pandemic lasted for 2 years. Still to this day 100 years later no one knows the exact location of where it started, what caused it and why it spread so fast. Most people believed it started in Spain because of the name Spanish Flu Pandemic. Men and Women who survived this disease had a side effect after having it they developed  Melancholia also known as depression.  It seemed as if surviving the disease made them have depression..Ancient Greeks thought of this disease as a spiritual pandemic as if it was God wiping the people of the earth with such a deadly strain of virus. This pandemic seemed like it had two different types of viruses in them, Spanish influenza, and the ‘cough of Perinthus’ this was were the upper respiratory issues began.What was a whole other epidemic that happened in the winter. The symptoms of this influenza are terrible suffering. These are just some of the symptoms, fever, nausea, aches, diarrhea. That is just the beginning symptoms of influenza. Then later on in the development of this flu you would notice dark spots on the face, turning blue because of lack of oxygen to the brain and then slowly because of all the coughing you have been doing your trachea gets scratched and then they would choke on there blood and then the lungs would get punctured until your lungs were filled with blood.At this time in history, there was no treatment. Researchers later realized the reason for the flu being so bad was because it would cause pneumonia. If you are were wondering if there was a treatment for this epidemic, yes there is.The U.S military would give the patients an injection of blood plasma to fight off the ill blood cells. No one really understood why this killed so many, normally the flu like this more harmful to babies or elders but this strain of flu killed many healthy people in their 20’s and 30’s.  This is the only strain of flu that has been found deadly to monkeys. It also is known as “the deadliest in modern history”. Infecting 500 million worldwide that is almost one-third of the earth population. Most of the books written about this flu are books with many other worldwide epidemics. But one stuck out to me “The Spanish Flu and How it Changed the World” or you may know it as “Pale Rider”  written by Laura Spinney. It talks about how this spread the way it did and how fast it took people’s lives and how it made everyone wonder if this would ever happen again. The biggest focal points of where this disease was, was in the Caribbean, Latin America, India,  and Eastern Europe N., A. “The globalization of leptospirosis: worldwide incidence trends.” International Journal of Infectious Diseases, ElsewhereA., N. . “Home Page Top Stories.” NPR.org, 30 Jan. 2018, NPR.org/.N., A. “Pale Rider: the Spanish flu of 1918 and how it changed the world.” Science & research news | Frontiers | Open-Access publisher, 8 Dec. 2017, blog.frontiersin.org/2017/06/01/pale-rider-the-spanish-flu-of-1918-and-how-it-changed-the-world/Andrews, Evan. “Why was it called the “Spanish Flu?”.” History.com, A Television Networks, 15 Jan. 2016, www.history.com/news/ask-history/why-was-it-called-the-spanish-fluA., N. .
