Default Re: 1918 Spanish Flu a Biological Warfare Agent?

Research carried out by John Oxford, a virologist at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, and the Royal London Hospital, has found that the virus first got hold in 1918 at the British military camp at Étaples in France.

This camp formed an important centre communication wise and was linked by rail transporting troops straight to the frontlines.

In other words the virus could not have been better placed for disrupting the Allied war effort.
