Ike Didn't Like the "Asian Flu"
Friends, while many have compared the coronavirus pandemic to the Spanish Flu of 1918-19, this article makes an intriguing case that the "Asian Flu" of 1957-58 is a more apt parallel. See if you agree. Horowitz points out that our response in 1957-58 was a lot less hyperbolic than it is today, despite the fact that the toll was arguably higher. But then no one would accuse the architects of public policy in 2020 of being detached and judicious, would they? Tsk tsk.
