    COVID-19: How Did 1918 Prepare Us for Today? How Will 2020-2021 Prepare Us for Tomorrow?

    COVID-19: How Did 1918 Prepare Us for Today? How Will 2020-2021 Prepare Us for Tomorrow?

    The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 has in many ways guided the public health, economic, and social responses to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Most of those “lessons learned” proved useful, many perhaps not, and certainly, some have been controversial. This episode examines historical lessons from 1918, how they played out for COVID-19, and how these two pandemics will help us (hopefully) prepare for the next one. (Originally recorded June 24, 2021) Moderator: Ryan Maves, MD, FCCP.
