THE FLU PANDEMIC OF 1918: WHO IS TO BLAME?

Who’s to blame for the Spanish Flu?

This week, The Alarmist (Rebecca Delgado Smith) welcomes Actor Avital Ash to the show to discuss the catastrophically devastating flu pandemic which wreaked unprecedented havoc throughout the world from 1918-1920. What conditions were in place at the time that allowed for such a widespread outbreak? Could the war effort be to blame? Were poor living conditions a contributing factor? And why is it even called the Spanish Flu to begin with? Fact Checker Chris Smith and Producer Clayton Early join this hauntingly familiar conversation.
