According to an estimate by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were approximately 45 million cases of the flu in the United States during the 2017-2018 influenza season, resulting in an estimated 810,000 flu-associated hospitalizations and an estimated 61,000 flu-associated deaths.
It also killed more children than in any non-pandemic year on record, 172.
In the 2016-17 season, there were an estimated 29 million flu cases in the United States; and estimated 497,000 flu-related hospitalizations and 38,000 flu-related deaths. (For comparison, 36,560 people died in car accidents in 2018 in the United States.)
The CDC reports that “between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide die from seasonal influenza-related respiratory illnesses each year.”
The U.S. has surpassed Italy as the country with the highest number of coronavirus deaths with nearly 22,000 recorded by early Monday and 554,007 cases, according to left-wingNBC News figures. Worldwide, the death toll is more than 114,000, and the number of confirmed cases nears 1.9 million, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Isn’t it strange that this season there are hardly any flu deaths? They are all magically called CV19. Pneumonia has been wiped off the Cause of Death list.
Still considering the numbers from the 2017-2018 influenza season the COVID 19 numbers are nothing.
And I don’t remember any lockdown os school closures during the 2017-2018 season?
The coronavirus cannot keep us stuck in our homes forever.
Someday our kids will go back to school, we will return to work, and families and friends will gather once again for birthdays, holidays, weddings and funerals.
We will see movies in theaters, get drunk in crowded bars, and scream recklessly in packed sports stadiums — droplets be damned.
But how will we get from here to there? What will reentry to normal life look like? How will we ever trust ourselves again, our unseen enemy is created by the mainstream media and is here to stay.
What do you think ?
