Caring for Spanish flu victims

1919: American Red Cross volunteers carry a Spanish flu victim, 1919.

It is estimated that anywhere from 20 to 100 million people were killed worldwide, or the approximate equivalent of one third of the population of Europe, more than double the number killed in World War I.
