      I disagree. Covid is not comparable with the Spanish flu, nor is the situation in the world in 1918 and 2020. Comparisons with 1918 is mostly just scaring people without cause in my opinion.

      My point was to make people consider the changes in the pandemic during the different phases. In the 1918 attack, the first phase of the pandemic was relatively simple and it was not much worse than any flu. It was the second phase of the pandemic that caused so much of the misery.

      I hope others do not make the same mistake they did in the 1918 pandemic. So many people died due to premature openings and due to ignoring the warnings of the experts. This COVID-19 thing is not likely to be over and the second wave may be worse.

      I hope it isn't but a virus is a living thing that changes over the course of its existence. This coming fall we will see and I hope I am 100% wrong.

      I hope that they find a cure and its is available by the end of 2020. This virus is not likely to go away on its own.

    I posted the ‘58 because that makes 3 health (1958, 2009, 2020) crises that have lived thru (excluding AIDS). Few remember the ‘58 flu pandemic and would have been worse if not for the efforts of a brilliant scientist.

      You left out the 1968-1969 pandemic we lived through. 100K people died in the US and neither one of us realized it was going on as we lived through it. Nothing in our lives changed as the pandemic took 100K lives. Quite the contrast from Covid-19.
