Description:
Photo of an unknown nurse wearing a mask for protection against influenza. You have got to admire all medical professionals who took care of the sick during the world's most terrible epidemic.

Congress had to approve a $1 million budget granted to the U.S. Public Health Service to recruit 1,000 medical doctors and 700 registered nurses due to the extreme danger these professionals underwent given their proximity to the influenza disease.

This nurse wearing a protective mask walked on wooden planks to refill water in a make-shift hospital treating patients of the 1918 influenza.
