Influenza Pandemic History 

In the 20th Century, scientist recorded three flu pandemics: Spanish Influenza (1918), Asian Flu (1957), and Hong Kong Flu (1968). A pandemic generally spans across a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population. These three flu pandemics resulted from three different sub-types of the influenza virus and had varying effects on affected populations. Nevertheless, these events provide a historical perspective to current Avian Flu outbreaks and the potential impact of a global Avian Flu pandemic.
