Transcript of The Spanish Flu

Interesting Fact #1 Introduction The Spanish Flu affected WWI because it turned into a dangerous disease-Pneumonia! All this together, about 62,000 American troops died. Medicine could not help. Also, being right on top of each other in the trenches made it easy for the disease to spread. It also affected civilians around the world, because many people were suffering from malnutrition after WWI ended. Interesting Fact #2 The first round of the flu was contagious, but the second round was deadly. Interesting Fact #3 The hospitals were getting overwhelmed with people coming in with the influenza.
