I happened to see a program that touched upon the 1952 “Great Smog” & was amazed, amused & sobered by what happened then & what happened 68-years ago.

This cracked me up. They was controversy then (as now) as to the effectiveness of wearing masks. Human nature does not change. WOW.

It only lasted 5-days but thousands died. Despite warnings to the Government nothing had been done. Hospitals didn’t have enough equipment & staff. Deja vu all over again. The parallels were quite striking.
