During the 1918-1919 the "side effects" due to that pandemic is difficult to fathom. Since record keeping wasn't as extensive as it is now, the historians who have researched what information is available tend to vary widely in their estimates of how many died from that strain of flu virus. The range is anywhere from 10 million to 50 million. We never will know.

There is a reason why there are so fewer deaths due to the current flu virus and its mutated strains. There was no vaccine at that time. Scientists tried their best to come up with ways to combat it, but to little avail. There was no electron microscopy in 1918, among other tools our best virologists have at their disposal today.

Want to learn about viruses? Vincent Racaniello is a good place to start. A professor of virology at Columbia in Manhattan, and one of the world's foremost authorities on viruses.
