Both COVID-19 and Spanish flu can spread from person-to-person, between people who are in close contact with one another. Both are spread mainly by droplets made when people with the illness (COVID-19 or flu) cough, sneeze, or talk.

This collage represents the ways we can prevent COVID-19 and the Spanish flu from spreading. By following the guidelines, we can stop the virus from spreading: wearing a mask, washing your hands, and keeping a safe distance. I am from Kuwait, and I wanted to add my culture to this poster, so I added a little bit of COVID-19 guidelines in Arabic that we have to follow back home.
