AUh h the nt epidemic is ®?
railed "Spanish influenza," there is d
no reason to believe that it origina- j s
ted in Spain. Some writers who have •,
studied the question believe that the
epidemic originated in the Orient, and
they call attention to the fact that e. r
the Germans mentioned the disease
as occurring along the eastern front .
in the summer and fall of 1917.
Sit-in ish InflnenvaT be
Spanish Influençai be
There is yet no way in which a
single case of Spanish influenza can
be recognized; on the other hand,
recognition is easy where there is a
group of cases. In contrast to the
outbreaks of ordinary coughs and
colds, which usually occur in the cold
months, epidemics of influenza may
occur at any season of the year, thus
the present epidemic raged most fn
riousy in Europe in May, June and
July. Moreover, in the case of ordi
nary colds the general symptoms, fe
ver, pain and depression, are by no
means as severe or as sudden in their
onset as they are in influenza. Fi
nally, ordinary colds do not spread
through the community so rapidly or
so extensively as does influenza.
In most cases a person taken sick
with influenza, feels sick rather sud
denly. He feels week, has pains in
the eyes, ears, head or back, and may
be sore all over. Many patients feel
dizzy, some vomit. Most of the pa
tients complain of feeling chilly, and
with this comes a fever which rises
to 100 to 104. In most cases the pulse
remains rather slow.
In appearance one is struck with
the fact that the patient looks s'ck
His eyes and the inner side of his eye
lids may be slightly bloodshot. There
may be running from the nose, or
there may be some cough These in
dications of a cold may not be very
marked: nevertheless the patient
looks and feels very sick.
What is the course of the disease?
Do people die of it!
Ordinarily the fever lasts from
three to four days and the patient
recovers. But while the proportion of
deaths in the present epidemic has
been generally low, in some places the
outbreak has been severe and deaths
have been numerous. When death oc
curs it is usually the result of a com
What causes ^ the disease and how
is it spread!
Bacteriologists who have studied
influenza epidemics In the past have
found in many cases a very small
rod-shaped germ called Pfeiffer's ba
cillus. In other cases other kinds of
germs were found.
No matter what particular kind of
germ causes the epidemic, it is now
believed that influenza is always
spread from person to person, the
germs being carried with the air along
with the very small droplets of mu
cus, expelled by coughing or sneez
ing, forceful talking, and the like by
one who already has the germs of the
disease. They may also be carried
about in the air in the form of dust
coming from dried mucus, from cough
ing or sneezing, or from careless peo
ple who spit on the sidewalk. As in
most other catching diseases, a per
on who has only a mild attack of the
