    Boats, rafts, swimming, transporter(Star Trek), star gate (SG1) and by hydrogen filled dirgibles,(because we get mail from Overseas it will get here.  Also, the wind.(possibility that could happen)coming from Europe (Columbus got here in 1492), we would have more ships in the water. How do you think the U.S. got involved in 2 world wars?  They came by boat and brought the Flu to Spain (where it was first identified)

    100 years ago, then military men getting LEAVE time off to visit back HOME in the U.S. took that confined to military camp to the general population of the U.S. killing off a swack load of U.S. citizens.  Google Spanish Flu. and be amazed you have done this once already.

    Yes because of the cargo ships that comes from china over here. However if airplanes and cargo ships never made it to the usa, and the usa never had anyone or any products coming from china in that year than I think it might have traveled by wind.

    i would say yes someone would have found a way to carry it over to us.

    The CHINESE would have found another way to get it to us. They are very innovative.

    It would have slowed the transmission down.  People would still arrive by boat.  It would just take a month instead of a few hours.  Once it was on this side of the ocean, travelers would move it inland by train.  Remember that many people have no symptoms or very mild symptoms.

    It would have gotten here eventually and as far as not being as bad as the Spanish flu the is purely BS. Modern medicine eclipses what they had in 1918.

    The 1918 flue pandemic was worse than the Corona Virus (so far), and had no trouble spreading around the world, even though travel by air was uncommon. It was helped along by the war that was going on, with so many troops being shipped around the world. Many men were inducted into the armies, only to become sick and either die, or be sent home.

    Not as quickly, but it might have come on a ship eventually.
