Earlier, we shared an episode of Stories, A History of Appalachia, a podcast that shares history of the Appalachian Mountains. Today, hosts Steve Gilly and Rod Mullins return for a second episode on 1918’s Spanish Flu where they tell more stories about the flu and its spread. While the episode concentrates on Tennessee, Virginia, and Kentucky, many of the stories they tell could be the same in our region.

About the Numbers

You will note a series of numbers contained in the blog. They document the spread of virus through confirmed cases by the federal Centers for Disease Control and by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. These are the official totals provided by state and local government at the date of the post and do not include estimates or cases not confirmed by these agencies. This is our effort to provide an accurate gauge of confirmed virus spread as it continues during the pandemic.
