Dr Milne will be talking with Sarah-Anne Buckley about the 1918-19 influenza epidemic, which killed more than 50 million people, and infected between one fifth and half of the world’s population. It is the world’s greatest killing influenza pandemic, and is used as a worst case scenario for emerging infectious disease epidemics like the coronavirus COVID-19.
