Pandemics - a short history

Pandemics are nothing new: the Black Death of 1346-51, the Great Plague of 1664 -67, the Russian Flu of 1893-94, the Spanish Flu of 1918-20, the Asian Flu 1957-58, the Hong Kong Flu 1968-69, the Russian Flu (again!) 1977-78 all caused by variant types of the 1918 outbreak, the 2003 SARS-COV outbreak, the 2009 Swine Flu pandemic, the list goes on.

Mark Shaddick has researched the parallels between Covid and the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918, with reference to Bidford District.
