"The Spanish influenza, as it was dubbed because of it's supposed country of origin, was one of the worst plagues in history. It killed quickly, sometimes in less than a day, and attacked not only the weak and the elderly but also otherwise healthy young adults. Historians estimate that it killed 30 million to 50 million worldwide in just a few months from 1918 to 1919.
Understand that TENS OF MILLIONS MORE PERSONS DIED FROM THE INFLUENZA PANDEMIC THAN DURING THE FOUR YEARS OF COMBAT DURING WORLD WAR ONE!!
Most surprisingly too persons stricken and becoming fatalities in the prime of their life, almost unprecedented!!
Blame it all on the pigs!
