The flu epidemic of 1918

The economy-sized
bottles of haod saoitizer
that have been spotted
aroood campos in receot
weeks have tome to serve
as a warning sigo. The
HiNt viros, more affec-
tionately referred to as
swine flu, is sweepingcthe
nation, causing panic in
some students.
What students may
not know is that they
ace not the first crop of
scholars at the Univer-
sity to face an epidemic.
Though it lacked an
adorable farm animal
nickname, the influen-
za Pandemic of 19111 was
also a serious health
concern on campus.
An article printed in

the Daily on Oct. 25, 1918
reported that "the best
day experienced so far by
the medical authorities
in combatingcthe epidem-
ic" on campus was one in
which only a single death
occurred.
To accommodate the
vast numbers of infected
Anon Arbor residents,
the University Hospital
transformed upward of
five of its floors into influ-
coza wards and suspend-
ed all surgical operations
unless they were classi-
fied as emergencies.
In preparation for
an overflow finns the
already reconfigured
wards, the hospital urged
non-flu patients on the

road to recovery to con-
sider whether "they were
well enough to permit
their being discharged,"
so that additional wards
could accommodate
influenza patients.
Like the numerous
c-mails students have
received this year, the
University inl1918warned
the people of Ann Arbor
"not to let up in taking
precautions" and that
"cond itions would not get
back to where they were
unless people continued
to be careful."
While the University
Health Service has asked
students who think they
have the swine flu to stay
away from the health

service building this year
-to prevent the disease
from spreading further
-student cases in 1918
were brought directly
to the hospital for treat-
ment.
According to the Cen-
ters for Disease Control
and Prevention web-
site, "almost all cases of
influenza A, have been
caused by descendants of
the 1918 virus, including
HtNl viruses ... making
the 1918 virus the -moth-
er' of all pandemics."
So it seems as though
the current student pop-
ulation has the alumni of
1918 to thank for the state
of campus health today.

CORRECTIONS
. A snotty in yesterday's cdi-
tiosn of The Michigan Daily,
"Prof's stem cell trial gets
FDAs OK;' inaccurately
stated the University's study
was the first clinical trial of
a stem cell-derived treat-
men on a reference toward
the bottom of the article.
As the initial reference cor-
rectly stated, it is the first of
its kind for ALS, not the first
osf its kind generally.
" A viewpoint in yesterday's
editinon nsf The Michigan
Daily, "Don't sacrifice ani-
mals for science," inaccu-
rately reported the time nsf
the "Testing... tOne, Two,
