Re: 51 of 102 Pilgrims die of vicious sickness
I am back with addition information for researchers--
Correction--type in on 'search--'Spanish Flu in Spain
This gives a more narrow selection of subject stories...
Which, if you are interested in finding the background
for true illustrations--this concentrates the materials.
Once on the Main Page, to give you an over-all view
of the Spanish Flu, choose the 1st paragraph,which gives
you:"Spanish Flu, Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia"
Choose the 3rd paragraph--"Science Odessey, People & Discoveries" by www.PBS.org (Public Broadcasting System)
7th paragraph, gives article by news.nationalgeographic
click 9th for Illinois Trails--a state's story of Flu...
Click 10th for--www.ABCnews.go.com/health/AvianFlu story
These are all on the 1st page--but will make you very
knowledgible--as to Bird Flu, Hog Flu,& Spanish Flu,etc.
I can see why when bloody froth was coughed up, that
some people-even doctors might mistake this Flu for TB,
Of course, skin out-breaks, would indicate scurvy...
As I understand, even over half of Mayflower crew was
sick--with the sickness, which also delays Captain Jones departure from Plymouth back to England
There are more than 20 pages, of various news stories
relating to Spanish & Bird Flu.
The U.N.Whole Health Organization, convinced Hong Kong
to completely destroy One & a Half Million Chickens in
1997, because of an small outbreak of Bird Flu in China--
they were taking NO Chances--of a new development!!
So--what chance did our 102 Mayflower Pilgrims have-??
