The flu pandemic that came out in the city of Kansas City, USA in the spring season of 1918, named as the Spanish Flu, did not only affect First World War, but it also caused the death of millions of people. Nearly 500 million people were infected, and the number of people who died due to the pandemic in the world was approximately 50 million and the general death rate was between 2.5 and 5 per thousand. The so-called Spanish Flu killed more people (60 million) in a particular length of time than any disease other than the Black Death. The biggest characteristic of the Spanish Flu is that it is the pandemic that is known best in history that affected and killed healthy young people rather than the elderly, children, and the weak. The measures taken to prevent the spread of the Spanish Flu hit many sectors, mainly the food and beverage sectors. Some foods and beverages such as whiskey and onions played an important role in the treatment of the disease at that period.
