Oak City Flu

4/15/2020

I’ve been frustrated by the lack of information concerning the 1918 Spanish influenza, aka, “La Grippe,” in Raleigh, North Carolina. I think our city’s experience with a past scourge, communicated by the primary sources, is an invaluable tool to put things in perspective — for better or worse.

It seems to be a myth that the 1918 flu was not well covered by the U.S. press because of WWI censorship. Our local paper covered the story with alarm.

I’ve read dozens of these articles and they are all informative. (None mention any bio-engineering.) I’ll keep posting them until I run out.
