In other news, a global pandemic with attributes resembling those of COVID-19 by name H1N1 or Influenza or Spanish flu occurred in 1918 and killed an estimated 100,000 Ghanaians.
A report gathered by Cambridge.org, indicates that the disease was introduced into the then Gold Coast by shipping along the Southern Coast and overland across the Northern Frontier.
The influenza epidemic killed 100,000 or more people in less than six months and was almost certainly the worst short-term demographic disaster in the history of Ghana.
