(2) What are past pandemics? (3) The history of killer flu virus behind the 1918 pandemic. (4) What is the flu family tree (swine flu, bird flu, and H flu)? (5) What are type A, B, C flu viruses? (6) What are nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs)? (7) What is the impact on health systems? (8) Work from Home (WFH) and research.
