    With respect that’s impossible because they were both flus and they both involved many deaths worldwide

Not that the flu wasn’t horrible, but it really was a perfect storm of movement, chaos, and institutions that were broken. Some things can be learnt, but there were so many other factors that don’t apply today
    A total of 70 million troops were mobilised during the First World War. A sizable proportion of those didn't cross an international border. That was over 4 years.
    Every day 6 million people take a flight. Many of those are international flights. That's 2.19 billion passengers a year in the air.

    Spanish flu in 1918 Portugal Portuguese flu in 1917 year of the apparition of Nossa Senhora do Rosário to the three Portuguese shepherds in Fátima.

    And the flu of the 1500s that killed millions of Indigines across the American continent, European flu that went to the Americas by Portuguese and Spaniards in the conquest of territories, we must also remember that flu.

    My greatest pleasure was to see the coronavirus kill all parasites from all the nations of the world. Starting with rulers who sell themselves for money and put their people to live in ****.

    No country in the world is prepared to fight the Coronavirus, nor the countries called superpowers, which today also need help.
    When will the Cornavirus disappear from planet Earth, only time has the right answers.

    The world that gets ready, will die millions of people with the coronavirus.

    In portuguese - Em português

    Gripe espanhola em 1918 Portugal gripe portuguêsa em 1917 ano da aparição da Nossa Senhora do Rosário aos três pastores portuguêses em Fátima.

    E a gripe dos anos 1500 que matou milhões de Indiginas por todo continente americano, gripe europeia que foi para as américas por portuguêses e espanhóis nas conquistas de territórios, tambem nos devemos lembrar dessa gripe.


    O meu maior prazer era ver o coronavírus matar todos os parasitas de todas as nações do mundo. A começar por governantes que se vendem a troco de dinheiro e colocar as suas populações a viverem na merda.


    Nenhum país do mundo está preparado para combater o Coronavírus,nem os países chamados super potências,que hoje tambem precisam de ajuda.
    Quando é que o Cornavírus vai desaparecer do planeta terra,só o tempo é que tem a respostas certa.


    O mundo que se prepare,vai morrer milhões de pessoas com o coronavírus.

    We lived in a world with far less population mobility but where the population was mobile the death rates were much higher.
    Globally 500 million were infected and 50 million died. There were 2 billion people on the planet at the time. There are 7.5 billion now and we move around far more than we did then.
    That’s true that folks move around more compared to the past. That was before the corona outbreak or at least the government response to it whether or not that was an overreaction the history will tell. The difference between 1918 and 2020 is the mass lockdown in the countries throughout the world

    they were still even in 1918 mass gatherings all throughout the USA consider the sporting events that occurred in the south the north west and the East . Think of baseball games all throughout the country as well as football games at that time. More so baseball which was the most popular sport at the time in 1918


    It’s very interesting that Woodrow Wilson never even mentioned the flu. And that only half of 1% of Americans died in the Spanish flu. That’s why there should be hopes that today we will have a very low death rate with regard to the coronavirus because of the mass lockdown and economic halt

  • Any comparison between the 1918 Spanish flu and the 2020 coronavirus?

    President Woodrow Wilson never spoke about the Spanish flu of 1918. The flu ended up killing about half a million Americans with a population at the time of about 105 million

    During the Spanish flu of 1918 our economy continued everyone continued as normal and half of 1% of our population died from the flu. On the other hand during this coronavirus our economy has been halted the four big sports leagues have been completely stopped until further notice. Both viruses were new at the time.

    So the question is with all of these movement restrictions in the modern times and the economic halt ...In the end will the death rate in the United States with regard to the coronavirus be less than that of the death rate of 1918 Spanish flu?
