The Deadly Flu of 1918

In 1918-1919, the worst flu in recorded history killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide. The U.S. death toll was 675,000 - five times the number of U.S. soldiers killed in World War I. Where did the 1918 flu come from? Why was it so lethal? What did we learn?

This is an US Dept of Health Film but it is revelant to New Zealand - because more New Zealanders died from the 1918 flu epidemic than died in the battles of WW1
