Influenza Over Time

These days influenza, otherwise know as the flu isn’t really thought of as a life-threatening disease. It’s a normal part of some people’s lives, and can easily be cured within a few days or weeks of a few doses of medicine. But have you ever thought of what it may have been like before our modern day medicine existed? In this timeline, I will describe how and when it was first appeared, the research done involving it, to the modern day flu and the preventions today as we know it. By: Alyssa Brown
