Title: The Spanish Flu of 1918 in the Selected American Press of the Period

Abstract:

The article examines press press reports on Spanish flu in the American daily press from 1918. The name of the disease is misleading, and it was coined due to the fact that Spain, which was not involved in the military conflict at the time of the epidemic, was one from the first countries of the world reported new cases of a disturbing disease. The press reports mainly concealed the actual state of the epidemic, as well as the number of sick and dead people. Germany, Spain and Russia were cited as countries with a high incidence rate to reassure the American public and raise morale.
