. . . .
The 1918 influenza pandemic (January 1918 – December 1920; colloquially known as the Spanish flu) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic, the first of the two pandemics involving H1N1 influenza virus, with the second being the swine flu in 2009. It infected 500 million people around the world, or about 27% of the then world population of between 1.8 and 1.9 billion, including people on isolated Pacific islands and in the Arctic. The death toll is estimated to have been anywhere from 17 million to 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million, making it one of the deadliest epidemics in human history.
. . .
Most influenza outbreaks disproportionately kill the very young and the very old, with a higher survival rate for those in between, but the Spanish flu pandemic resulted in a higher than expected mortality rate for young adults.
. . .
In a 2007 analysis of medical journals from the period of the pandemic found that the viral infection was no more aggressive than previous influenza strains. Instead, malnourishment, overcrowded medical camps and hospitals, and poor hygiene promoted bacterial superinfection. This superinfection killed most of the victims, typically after a somewhat prolonged death bed.

PREPPERS should fare well, if they have sufficient stocks of nourishing food, avoid concentrated populations, and promptly treat bacterial infections.
PNEUMONIA - An acute or chronic disease marked by inflammation of the lungs, usually caused by a bacterium, virus, or other infectious agent.

The most common symptoms of pneumonia include:
• cough
• shortness of breath
• chest pain
• fever
• chills
• fatigue and muscle aches

Sometimes, additional symptoms can occur, such as a persistent cough that causes a headache.

There are two rules to remember when recovering from pneumonia:

• Proper rest: A sick body needs plenty of downtime to heal. Refraining from physical activity and getting enough bed rest allows the body to focus on repairing itself, rather than using energy to power the muscles.
• Proper diet: Eating a varied diet rich in whole-food choices may help the body heal, and adequate liquid intake is essential. Water, herbal teas, soups, and broths are all easy ways to increase the liquid intake while recovering from pneumonia.

1. Peppermint, eucalyptus, and fenugreek tea
2. Saltwater gargle
*Shortness of breath*
3. Caffeine
4. Warm, damp air
5. Rest
*Chest pain*
6. Ginger or turmeric tea
7. Hydration
8. Fenugreek tea
9. Over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers
10. Lukewarm bath or compress
11. Warm liquids
*General symptoms*
12. Additional natural compounds

These at-home products contain compounds that help fight off bacteria, viruses, or fungi and can include the following:
• garlic
• raw honey
• cayenne pepper
• tea tree oil
• echinacea
. . . .

Hope this helps.
