Health Editor’s Note: A great degree of similarities between the pandemic in 1918 and  current COVID-19 pandemic.  Protesting wearing masks, disregard for safety measures, drive to meet together for Thanksgiving celebrations, etc.  Big difference now is that in 1918 there was no ability to view/identify a virus, thus the ‘vaccine’ that was developed for this pandemic was aimed at bacteria, so the vaccine was totally worthless against Spanish influenza.  At least we can stop this pandemic with vaccines….Carol
