Best Answer

Towards the end of the war, there was a massive outbreak of the Spanish flu, which lasted until 1920.

Spanish flu gets its name because at the time of the outbreak Spain was a neutral power and so did not censor news and the Spanish king Alfonso XIII caught the disease and so it received a lot of coverage in Spain.

Spanish flu is a type of Swine Flu that could affect anyone but was especially dangerous to young healthy adults, almost the opposite of the traditional flu; and as such its spread was probably hastened by the large movements of healthy troops, particularly to and from the USA.
