Remember when that was one of the WH talking points in the early stages of the pandemic? No reason to panic. COVID will go away when the weather gets warm. It's all under control.

Turns out, they were wrong..........in too many ways to discuss. One of the more demonstrably provable things they were wrong about was the comparison to the flu.

We wiped out the flu this year. Could we do it again?

That's what happens to influenza type viruses when people wear masks and practice social distancing. Unfortunately, COVID is a highly transmissible virus. More so than the regular flu.

The point being the COVID protocols dismissed as ineffective, infringements on freedom, a waste of time by conservatives.........they work. And if we had not implemented them, if we had not locked down the economy for a while, the infection rate and death toll would be far worse than it is.

Wow, what a miracle! The superintelligent and concerned about Americans left magically did away with the flu....totally wiped it out along with pneumonia in one year! Why, by forcing facediaper wearing and coming up with never before heard of hand washing they brought about this miracle! But wait.....with all this isolation and shutdown and miracle inventiveness, how could people NOT get flu or pneumonia but so easily catch the leftyvirus? It truly boggles the mind.

Not really. Lower flu cases comes as a direct result of less social interaction and safety measures taken when people are in public. The things that prevented COVID from being far worse. The things conservatives referred to as infringements on their freedom. What the exact numbers would have looked like if Trump's top adviser, Scott Atlas, had his way are obviously hard to determine. But we can say there would be millions dead not hundreds of thousands.

Amazing isn’t it? All we had to do to eliminate the flu and other illnesses is call them COVID cases. The flu didn’t go anywhere dumbass. It was just renamed to keep clowns like you scared.

Yep - masking, social distancing and other mitigation has kept the flu at record lows this season. Also, more people than ever got a flu shot.

The number of people who die each year from flu-related causes in the U.S. is 8,200 to 20,000. SOURCE: Centers for Disease Control.

Nope, COVID ain't the flu


United States
Coronavirus Cases:

29,530,165

Speaking as a Democrat, I'm humiliated the OP and his source would suggest the flu simply vanished due COVID or some BS.

I didn't know we tested for the flu in the past, did you know that? It's because they DIDN'T.

If only Faucci would have advised the president about the dangers of covid instead of telling him and us there's nothing to worry about Trump could have saved more than the millions of Americans he already and continues to save.

Over 85% of those who contracted covid were masks, practiced social distancing and washed their hands. This years flu must only spread in restaurants,,gyms, sporting events and gathers of over 10 people.

So do we mask up permanently to save lives or after Covid will flu deaths be acceptable?

Covid is just like the flu for most people.

I bet if you gave antibody tests to every American we would find an infection rate in excess of 80%
Do you know what that would do to your precious death rate?
And don't you find it odd that we only had a handful of actual flu cases? It's like covid cured all diseases.

You people are gullible as fuck
