Yes, it does and thank you, Dave. I have knack for trivia, but I'd never heard this term before.

I'd heard of the Spanish flu 25-30 years ago with its deaths of several millions, and, of course, it's been in the news lately. When I "Wiki'ed" it recently, I learned that my memory is not as sharp as formerly, for estimates now run from 15 to 20 million for the Spanish flu which is a different strain from the corona virus!

Let's hope the "curve" for this flu strain starts to flatten soon.
