How did the 1918 pandemic end, and could the same thing happen with coronavirus?
The 1918 flu pandemic is considered one of the most deadly of all time, and although it has never been completely eradicated, the pandemic came to an end after about two years and three waves of infection.
The “Spanish” flu was first found in U.S. soldiers and popped up in Europe and Asia in March of 1918. It was a form of an avian flu originating in birds. While the first wave was mild, the second was extremely deadly, with nearly 200,000 American deaths in October 1918 alone.
