The 1918 influenza outbreak is the closest comparison to what we’re living through right now. John Barry does a great job explaining the realities and lessons of that devastating pandemic.

John Barry, author of The Great Influenza, says full shutdown may be necessary. “Had we done it right the 1st time, we’d be operating at near 100% now, schools would be preparing for a nearly normal school yr...This is our 2nd chance. We won’t get a 3rd.”

John M. Barry said the U.S. handling of this outbreak will be remembered as “incomprehensibly incoherent."

The most important lesson of the 1918 influenza that killed up to 100 million people was simple, says John M. Barry, author of a history of that pandemic: Tell the truth

In 2017, for the 100th anniversary of Spanish flu, historian John M. Barry wrote that “the most important lesson from 1918 is to tell the truth...[I]mplementation will depend on the character and leadership of the people in charge when a crisis erupts.”
