Corona-19 V Spanish Flu

With all the technology, medical science, vaccines, and trillions of pounds sterling invested into pharmaceutical companies why is it that an end to this pandemic can not be a commitment made by any medical officer I’ve seen or heard?

Between the years 1918 and 1920 an estimated 50 million people died of the Spanish Flu. It infected about one-third of the world’s population and then it ended. To my knowledge, very little if anything of what I’ve itemised was available to the medical profession during those years so how was it ended?

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp is a member of The Society of Authors. His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All ten of his novels are now published by CNext Chapter with the tenth novel being a two-part ending to the Heirs and Descendants Series. A Covenant of Spies completed the four-book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? Once I Was A Soldier and A Widow's Son. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number-one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, the UK, Canada, and Australia. Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the two novellas he wrote, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled--The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel. There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality. Amazon Author Page He is fond of writing Quotes and a collection of his can be found here---

  1. Hi Danny, I googled when did Spanish flu end and says it never has. It says we are still living in a 1918 pandemic era. It’s very interesting and you can read the article here:

    I didn’t know that it hadn’t ended but it makes perfect sense. I guess it will be the same with this pandemic.

    I say Covid is different from the Spanish flu and other pandemics as are the times we are living in. Nice summation.

  4. Daniel Kemp says:

    From the information I found through Google there have been 217million cases and 4.55 deaths from COVID since it began, which is an awful lot less than the 50 million who died in 2 years from illness related to Spanish flu.
