No idea what you like to say with this words - but you have since about 13.8 billion years very concrete preexisting conditions.Not my problem. I don't have a pre-existing condition.It is no influenza season now. It is summer. Your problem is covid-19 now. United States: 134 097 deaths., 1. January - 11. July 2020.You have no hard numbers to back that up, we don't have the overall infection rate due to the newness of the disease.As time goes on, your attempts, like Trump's, to minimize this disease get more ridiculous.As time goes on the comparison becomes more and more valid with regards to mortality rates.Testy, testy. Stop with the comparison because it is comparing oranges to poison apples.why? Because it kills your narrative you dried up old twat?Just stop already with the COVID/Flu comparisons.But how different is this from any other viral infection, like the flu, that we deal with every year?People from a risk group have a higher risk to die - what doesn't mean people, who are not a member of a risk group, do not die on covid-19. Sometimes die also young people, who were always sane in their life. And often people suffer a post-covid-syndrome or much more worse problems after a light or more heavy infection.And just spouting raw numbers without actual current context is dishonest as well. The other thing is if COVID is primarily a threat to people already very ill, what percentage of their mortality do we attribute to COVID, and what percentage do we attribute to the underlying condition. A person with terminal emphysema dies 3 months earlier than they would have due to COVID, is that a pure COVID death? A pure Emphysema death, or a combination of the two?
The flu is no joke, and some yearly strains have a mortality profile similar to COVID
How COVID-19 is different and worse than the flu
You ignore that because it doesn't suit you politically.
The death rate for COVID is many times that of the flu. Just stop making a fool of yourself.
From October 2019 to April 2020, the CDC estimates that 24-64 thousand people died of the flu. Seven months and, at the most, 64,000 people. How many have died from COVID since March, just five months?
THIS flu, each flu season is different from the other.
