100 years ago, 50 million people died from the same virus. Sound like the beginning of an apocalypse film? NOPE, this is much worse. Why? Because it ACTUALLY happened.
Sept 28th marked the 100 year anniversary (give or take a day) that America had to face the fact that they, like other countries around the globe, were infected. With what you ask? The flu. Honestly, just the flu.
Join me as I explore why this flu was so deadly, where it hit the hardest, how Los Angeles contracted less cases than most major metropolitan US cities and WHY THE HELL NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE DEADLIEST DISEASE THAT KILLED MORE PEOPLE SINGLE HANDEDLY THAN ANY OTHER PANDEMIC.
