Caption: News article, 1918 influenza pandemic. This news article was published in Ogden Standard, Ogden city, Utah, November 16, 1918. It includes contemporary theories and opinions on the origin and impact of the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. It suggests it originated in China, in infections diagnosed as pneumonic plague. The pandemic occurred in several waves between 1918 and 1920, infected one fifth of the world population and killed between 20 and 50 million, more than had been killed in the First World War. The second wave of the pandemic, from August 1918, was much deadlier than the first, with high mortality rates among young healthy adults including soldiers.
