(1)Five hundred million people, in other words the third part of the entire world's population, were infected and fell ill.
The "Spanish" influenza pandemic of 1918–1919, which caused approximately 50 million deaths worldwide, remains an ominous warning to public health. The disease was exceptionally severe.
(2) The president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson that time, caught the flu— and so did future president Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Wilson felt bad during the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, he was negotiating the future path for the world after World War I. If he'd died during this times, it would have dramatically changed the future of many states. Wilson's daughter Margaret and much of his staff also got sick. Roosevelt — then the assistant secretary of the Navy — was infected while on a voyage to France aboard the USS Leviathan. Roosevelt survived the flu after being returned home to the States.
(3) The pandemic came to be known as the "Spanish flu," but it didn't actually start in Spain.
When the flu first hit Europe in early 1918, it spread throughout military camps on both sides of World War I. Even if it was going fast, governments involved in the war kept it a secret because they feared that acknowledging their troops were sick could help the enemy.
That's where Spain highlighted. Since it was a neutral country, it had no need to keep secrets when its people got sick, so the Spanish government and media reported what was happening.
(4)No one actually knows where the virus started. For decades, scientists have debated where in the world the pandemic started, variously pinpointing its origins in France, China, the American Midwest, and beyond. The Spanish flu reached its height in autumn 1918 but raged until 1920.
(5)People who catched the flu felt severe fatigue, fever, and headaches. Many also suffered from a cough so severe they would turn blue, tear abdominal muscles from coughing, and bleed from the mouth, nose, and sometimes ears.
The disease, which came to be known as the Spanish flu, hit the young and healthy, with many victims dying within hours or a couple days after the symptoms began.
Spanish reporter was caught cheating after naked women walks behind him during home interview - Video
An embarrassment event took place on TV with journalists working from home. A Spanish television employee, Alfonso Merlos, was broadcasting live when a naked woman appeared behind him. As it turned out, his colleague got into the frame. This raised questions for Merlos, since he had to sit with another woman at home in self-isolation.
The British newspaper Daily Mail wrote about the awkward situation. It is reported that online viewers immediately noticed that it was not the journalist’s girlfriend Marta Lopez who appeared in the video, but his colleague, 27-year-old Alexia Rivas.
However, they were outraged nor about the potential betrayal of Merlos to his girlfriend, but by the fact that journalists violated the strict rules of self-isolation in force in Spain.
For several days this story did not leave the pages of the Spanish media, and then Merlos spoke on one of the popular talk shows and asked for forgiveness from those to whom his behavior seemed inappropriate.
At the same time, Rivas claims that she met with Merlos for only a few weeks and he told her that he was free, and Lopez insisted that he was still in a relationship with the TV presenter.
According to Lopez, she and her boyfriend just had a fight and decided to live separately for several days. Before this event, they were together in self-isolation since March 12.

Severely affected by the coronavirus, Spain is slowly coming back to life, and on Saturday the authorities presented a plan to relax the restrictive measures. Among the new changes is the possibility for the little ones to go out to play, between 9.00-21.00, near the house. Sunday, April 26, was the first day of "escape" for children and teenagers.
But the restrictions are many. Children are not allowed to play with neighbours or move more than a kilometre away or go out without an adult. The duration is limited to one hour, between 9-21.00, and the parks remain closed.
The third country most affected by the pandemic that started in China at the end of 2019, Spain (23,190 deaths and 223,759 cases) has adopted one of the strictest isolation regimes in the world. In terms of mortality, it is preceded by the United States (over 53,000 deaths) and Italy (26,384), and is followed by France (22,614) and the United Kingdom (20,319).
