Deep Background

Smithsonian Magazine Feature – The 1918 -1919 H1N1 Flu Pandemic

The 1918 Flu (H1N1 virus) Pandemic got its name as the “Spanish” Flu because it was journalists and Spanish newspapers that accurately reported that a mysterious and virulent flu was spreading widely among Allied soldiers during the first world war. British, French, and US newspapers had censored any mention of the H1N1 flu virus. The earliest reported case of the H1N1 virus, also known as the “bird flu”, was in 1918, where US soldiers training at Camp Funston in Kansas had been stricken with ‘grippe’. It would be US soldiers that helped to contribute to the spread of the virus that would claim an estimate of 50 to 100 million people globally.
