I was a freshman in high school in 1957 and frankly I don't remember this! 116,000 Americans died. I never knew!

Elvis Was King, Ike Was President, and 116,000 Americans Died in a Pandemic

Why haven't we heard about this???
In February 1957, a new influenza A (H2N2) virus emerged in East Asia, triggering a pandemic (“Asian Flu”). This H2N2 virus was comprised of three different genes from an H2N2 virus that originated from an avian influenza A virus, including the H2 hemagglutinin and the N2 neuraminidase genes. It was first reported in Singapore in February 1957, Hong Kong in April 1957, and in coastal cities in the United States in summer 1957. The estimated number of deaths was 1.1 million worldwide and 116,000 in the United States.

The USA population in 1957 was 177,751,476
Nearly half the population today at 330 million... yet... proportionally if 116,000 died out of 177 million (0.07%) that would be equal to today to total deaths of 215,000 or nearly 3 times what it is today... WHY?

NOPE. Now remember you wouldn't have heard 1/4 of the bad news if Obama was president! H1N1 deaths?

61,000 died from flu just two years ago ...
PLUS this fact: NOTE True COVID-19 deaths from Coronvirus... 45,632 as of 5/7/20... NOT the headlined 75,000 deaths!

Why? Because we have nefarious and sinister activities working against the US right now ALONG with fauci and gates pushing for the entire world to be vaccinated. If that doesn't send up red flags then one is dumber than a pile of nails.
