Summary
In 1918, in the course of 120 terrifying days, a harmless disease mutated into the Spanish Flu. Striking quickly, the disease could fell a person in minutes, with overwhelming fatigue, raging fever, and lungs that hemorrhaged and filled with pus. This disease killed 22 million people around the world, wiping out 21,000 Americans in the last week of October alone. This episode of History Undercover traces the course of this horrible disease that scientists theorize, would have wiped out all mankind in months if it had maintained its rate of acceleration
