The Great Influenza of 1918 – Virtual Presentation

March 9 @ 7:00 pm

On Tuesday, March 9, the Ferndale Library will facilitate a virtual lecture featuring retired OCC teacher Dennis Fiems where he’ll enlighten everyone in attendance on the devastating flu epidemic that killed millions, worldwide, more than 100 years ago.
Fiems will talk about the staggering impact this virus had upon the lives of everyone on the planet, which started to spread in 1918, the final year of World War I. The CDC estimates that upwards of 500 million people became infected during this pandemic, which would have equated to nearly one-third of the world’s population at that time.
