Actually tuberculosis was a major killer at that time too. The public didn't have access to medical care needed to treat the symptoms.
I found this interesting.
I wonder how much of the population at that time could have already been weakened by undetected tuberculosis and therefore at a greater risk of complications?
Don't forget how primitive medicine was in 1918.
Very interesting link. I wonder, does "garden variety" flu pose an increased risk of death to a person with TB?
