HHS Video: We Heard The Bells



# 4319



This is an 8 minute trailer for a longer (1 hour) film on the 1918 pandemic.   I’ve not seen any air dates for the completed film, but the transcript is available on the site.


You can watch this trailer on YouTube, or on the Flu.Gov site  on the  We Heard The Bells page.





1918-1919, the worst flu in recorded history killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide. The U.S. death toll was 675,000 - five times the number of U.S. soldiers killed in World War I. Where did the 1918 flu come from? Why was it so lethal? What did we learn?
