The flu pandemic of 1918 had a profound effect on the world. In Colorado, it led to quarantines and even armed guards keeping visitors away from some towns.

And we examine a more recent viral outbreak in the Four Corners. KSUT’s Mark Duggan reports:

This is part two of a series of interviews with Andrew Gulliford. Part one looks at the devastating impact of the 1918 flu pandemic on the town of Silverton and on Native American lands in the Four Corners region. Listen here.
