Will the deadly flu outbreak claim more victims when the The Walking Dead returns?
I slowly walk into the town. Upon seeing this sign I grimace. How would one not help a dead person? Maybe they aren't quite dead yet! Just as that thought comes to mind, I see a body. Ignoring the bombarding thought of 'Go report it.' I give the lifeless body CPR. At this point there's no chance of whoever this is of surviving. A car drives up from the city and I stand, pretending I did nothing. ((Open rp))
On the morning of March 11, 1918 a Private at Fort Riley, KA reported to the hospital with flu-like symptoms. By noon over 100 fellow soldiers had joined him. It's believed these were the first cases of the 1918 influenza epidemic, later dubbed The Spanish Influenza. It spread quickly, traveling with US soldiers to the front. By the end of 1918 between 50-80 million people had died, making it even deadlier than WWI itself. (more from This Week in History: http://pinterest.com/popeggs/)
