Description

Featuring New York TImes Science Journalist Gina Kolata. 

 Drawing from her book, “Flu: The Story of the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918,” Gina Kolata reviews the fascinating history of the world’s deadliest disease and explores modern factors that show provocative parallels. 

The 1918 pandemic killed over 50 million people and infected 500 million worldwide. Questions Kolata will examine are: 

• What if certain flu viruses become resistant to drugs? 

• What pandemics will be next? • What can we do to prevent them?
