The reported number of flu cases in the US is at an all-time low this flu season. The website Weather.com reports that, during the second week of January, only 23 people tested positive for the flu in the US compared with 14,657 people who tested positive during the same time last year. Authorities say this is because of the large number of people who received flu shots this year and because of social distancing. They do not mention the fact that, over the past year, almost any illness is labeled as Covid-19 and that deaths from many other causes, including poisonings, shootings, homicides and hospice deaths, also were re-designated as Covid-19 deaths. The total number of deaths did not change significantly, which is evidence that flu cases are under reported and Covid cases are over reported. -GEG

Weather.com reported:

During the second week in January, 23 people tested positive for the flu in the United States.

More than 14,657 tested positive for the flu during the same time last year, before the coronavirus pandemic took hold.

“It’s crazy,” Lynnette Brammer, who leads the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Domestic Influenza Surveillance team, told The Washington Post. “This is my 30th flu season. I never would have expected to see flu activity this low.”

For the week ending January 16, the CDC reported low or minimal flu activity in almost every state and territory.

Last year, flu activity was high in 44 states that week, plus Puerto Rico and New York City. Only one state, New Hampshire, had minimal flu activity.

Doctors and health experts say the large number of people who got flu vaccines leading into this year’s flu season, combined with social distancing and other measures designed to help slow the spread of COVID-19, are likely contributors for the steep drop.

sure, we’re supposed to believe that flu cases are low because of face-diapers and distance-cringing…

but we supposed to simultaneously believe that covid is surging because people aren’t complying with face-diapers and distance-cringing…

was this a set up for a punchline…… ?
