Ep. 10 Pandemic Women: Comparing the 1918 Flu and COVID-19
We’re living in a COVID world, that’s just a fact. But we’ve been here before in a way: in 1918 when a Flu virus took over the world. This week, for the final episode of our first season, we take a look at how a simple strain of the Flu killed 5% of the world’s population. Find out where the Spanish Flu got its name, why the virus seemed to affect mostly young men and the revolutionary impact it had on women at the time. Then join us as we compare it to the COVID-19 and how this pandemic continues to impact women of all backgrounds and experiences, including women in medicine.
