12. Everyone really needs to read The Great Influenza. It is almost prophetic.

At the end he speculates what the outbreak would look like into today’s world where we expect modern medicine to save us.

This doctors account is almost a blow by blow of his prediction. We have the machines to save most people who get this kind of thing. But when you have 10 people needing every one machine the result is not much different than 1918. Which was horrifying. And once the doctors and nurses get sick the wheels fall off the machine.
