IN FLEW ENZA: THE SPANISH FLU COMES TO ALBERTA

Borealis Gallery Exhibition – October 17, 2018 to January 13, 2019.

No registration required.

 More Details

In 1918 a mysterious illness swept the globe. It struck erratically and swiftly, seeming to target otherwise healthy young adults. Its victims could be well in the morning and dead by nightfall.

The Spanish Flu, as the pandemic came to be known, was indiscriminate and it was ruthless; estimates place the worldwide mortality rate between 20 million and 100 million people. Roughly 1 in 6 Canadians perished. More than 4,000 Albertans, almost 10 per cent of the province’s population, died within four months. What happened? And what did it mean for the young province of Alberta?
