THE 100 YEARS PANDEMIC HISTORY


THE 100 YEARS PANDEMIC HISTORY

The whole world is now threatened by one tiny virus called corona virus which was started from Wuhan, province of China in December 2019. This virus has spread all over the world including our Country, India. The worst impact of this virus has fallen in Europe, specially in Italy, Spain and Switzerland. This pandemic has not only affected human lives but also affected major forms of sector such as business, trade, and overall economies. But there is something which should be noticed carefully! There are pandemics that have occurred earlier. Every hundred years, there seems to be a great pandemic, plague 1720, cholera epidemic 1820 and Spanish flu 1920. The pandemic Corona seems to follow the similar pattern like it took place before.

What’s happening? It seems that once in 100 years the world is devastated by a pandemic. The last recent pandemics we can mention are the following: In the year 1720 plague, in the year 1820 cholera outbreak and the most recent pandemic was the Spanish flu of 1920. The researchers said that all of these pandemics we mentioned above have exactly the same pattern as the corona virus outbreak in China. However, the precision with which these pandemics occur at exactly 100 years of age makes us think better about this topic. In 1720 there was a deadly pandemic of bubonic plague. It started in Marseille and was later called “The Great Plague of Marseille.” The researchers estimated the number of deaths as 100,000. In 1820 the first cholera pandemic occurred, somewhere in Asia. Among the affected countries, we can list Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. And this pandemic has killed about the same number of people. About 100,000 officially registered deaths. The main reason for the infection is the consumption of water from lakes infested with this killer bacterium. In 1920 one of the most unrelenting pandemics occurred. This is the Spanish flu that has infected about half a billion people and killed 100 million. The Spanish flu holds the official record for the deadliest pandemic officially recorded in history. It is now 2020. At the 100th anniversary of the Spanish Influenza, humanity is facing a new potential pandemic called corona virus. Although the Chinese authorities were reluctant to make official statements and appealed for calm, the situation deteriorated rapidly.

Let’s hope for good and wait for this pandemic to be over. Stay home, save lives!
