Title: The Maltese Experience of the 1918/19 Influenza Pandemic
Date: 24 June 2020
The Central Bank of Malta has embarked on a different way of delivering public lectures due to COVID-19. These lectures are being held virtually and live-streamed on the Bank's Facebook Page.
The influenza pandemic of 1918/19, also known as the Spanish Flu, killed more people than the First World War.
This talk on the Maltese experience is based on research done by Prof. Larry Sawchuk (Department of Anthropology, University of Toronto, Scarborough), Dr Lianne Tripp (Department of Anthropology, University of British Columbia, Canada) and Dr Mario Saliba, which was published in their paper entitled 'Deconstructing the 1918-19 Influenza Pandemic in the Maltese Islands'.
The lecture will be delivered by Dr Mario Saliba, Consultant & Baromedicine Physician at Gozo General Hospital.
