20. Actually at the time, a lot of people traveled a lot.

All those military and naval personnel returning from the war zones. They were from North America, all of Europe, Africa, India, Australia, New Zealand. They were packed into trains and troop ships. If even one in a hundred were infected ... we know the result. Worse, in Europe, especially Eastern Europe, the medical support was stretched to the breaking point and beyond. In India and sub Sahara Africa, wasn't much to begin with and broken by the first wave.

It was a plague's dream scenario.
