H1N1 post #5 — Christchurch, NZ, 1918. Back to the future?

Bloged in Viral threats by Gutter Grunt Saturday September 5, 2009 at about 4:11 pm

I lived in New Zealand for about a decade, and so things from and about NZ tend to catch my eye.  This one sure did – it’s a lecture given in 2005 by Canterbury University history professor, Geoffery Rice. Prof Rice published a book about the 1918 flu; it’s called Black November.  This lecture is a synopsis of his book as it relates to the experiences of this small city in NZ during Nov. 1918.

The complete lecture is posted on FluTrackers.  http://www.flutrackers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19396

If you want to get an idea of what the near future looks like, this is mandatory reading. More here . . .
