*nods* It does indeed, and in any case the symptoms of the Spanish Flu were similar to those of pneumonia --- it's just that the lack of oxygen was related to the bloodstream in that case, not the lungs as in pneumonia, and they didn't know that at the time. Virology was really in its infancy in 1918, and it was decades before Spanish Flu began to be understood.
