As the world begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic with shots going in arms, a growing sense of jollity is coming over more and more vaccinated people. There's an interesting parallel between the end of this pandemic and what could follow with the end of the 1918 influenza pandemic and the 1920s.
