According to a new research,The "Spanish" influenza pandemic from 1918 to 1919 killed around 50 million people worldwide and is still an ominous warning for public health. Many questions about its origin, its unusual epidemiological characteristics and its pathogenicity are still unanswered. So, even if the article is now dealing with the fear of pandemics caused by H5N1 or other viruses, the public's impact on the pandemic remains questionable. However, new information about the 1918 virus is emerging, for example, the sequencing of the entire genome from the archives autopsy organization. However, the virus genome alone is not likely to provide answers to some key questions. Understanding the impact of the 1918 pandemic and its impact on the future pandemic requires careful experimentation and in-depth historical analysis.
