ration1, Back in 1918 the US only had 103 million population as compared to 340 million today. Does that make the Spanish flu more contagious? It appears so. But anyway, people, just get the damn shots. Quit listening to these social media post of some kind of ingredient that will make us all zombies.

In other news, Johns Hopkins University is reporting the number of U.S. deaths due to COVID-19 has surpassed that of the Spanish Flu. We have done it to ourselves.
