While doing some archival digging I came across this short clip showing Red Cross Nurses in Boston preparing gauze masks to wear while caring for those sick with the Spanish Flu in 1918-19. I was surprised to see the clip end with some advice that remains relevant in the current Coronavirus Outbreak. I thought it was worth sharing as it shows we’ve tackled crisis like these before and come through them.
With the advice to self-isolate during the outbreak we know there will be boring spells – so if you’re bored be sure to check out our 100+ earlier videos on some fascinating firearms and other weapons here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgvKdxHf2bJOaZA4TtabjdA/videos?view=57&flow=grid
