#ThursdayThought The #SpanishFlu did not originate in #Spain. It was called that because #Spanish newspapers were the first to report the pandemic. All other countries were involved in #WWI & censored information as it would probably lead to morale issues & desertions. #COVID2019 pic.twitter.com/VhPzgzr8B9— Manny Ortega 🇺🇸🇵🇷🇺🇦 #IStandWithUkraine (@presidentmanny) April 9, 2020
