Influenza (flu)
Key disease facts

Influenza (flu) is a very common, highly infectious disease caused by a virus. It can be very dangerous, causing serious complications and death, especially for people in risk groups. In rare cases flu can kill people who are otherwise healthy. In the UK it is estimated that an average of 600 people a year die from complications of flu. In some years it is estimated that this can rise to over 10,000 deaths (see for example this UK study from 2013 , which estimated over 13,000 deaths resulting from flu in 2008-09). Flu leads to hundreds of thousands of GP visits and tens of thousands of hospital stays a year.

The flu virus is very variable and changes over time. Each year there are different strains around, and a new vaccine has to be prepared to deal with them. Vaccination from previous years is not likely to protect people against current strains of flu.

There are three basic types of flu: A, B and C. Type A is the most dangerous; it is the one that can cause serious disease and also triggers worldwide pandemics. Type C causes mild disease. Type B can make you feel very ill, but it has never led to a worldwide pandemic.

Flu epidemics can kill thousands or even millions of people. The 1918 flu epidemic is estimated to have affected half the world's population, and killed 40-50 million people worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that flu kills between 250,000 and 500,000 people around the world every year.

In the UK (and in the rest of the northern hemisphere) the annual flu season runs from about October to March or April. Most cases of flu occur between December and February.

President Trump will be proven correct once again because as WHO says "flu season runs from about October to March or April. Most cases of flu occur between December and February".

You can take that to the bank....

Here's some fucking perspective, Einstein:

Flu - 0.01% death rate
Corona Virus - 2% MINIMUM death rate

327M US citizens.

327M x 0.01% = 32,700 deaths in US
327M x 2% = 6.5 MILLION deaths in the US ALONE

Plus add that you are ASYMPTOMATIC for 14 days minimum, AND can get REINFECTED after recovering = WE'RE FUCKED

Based PURELY on the fucking math you are touting above.

Covid 19 is at least twenty ( fifty to sixty from trumps last presser)times as lethal with higher transmission. It can live longer outside body than flu. It can be weeks incubating and some carriers have no symptoms. Comparing it with flu shows its mass casualty potential , even to those with limited cognitive function. Trump just told the world twenty two have it, one dead in US. Thats much higher death rate than outside US, and if it were true, would kill millions of people in the US in next few months. Make no mistake, covid 19 has all the right numbers to cull the human race like nothing ever seen before. The lack of preparation in the US from the trump admin will compromise north america severely. Leave , flee to mexico or canada while they still allow it.

Hasn't killed that many in China yet.

What makes you think the uS so special?

Your Mortallity rate is for those infected not total Polulation your fear Mongering idiot.


China Population 1.3 Billion ~80,000 officially Stated Dead

or lets say 5X that = 400,000 Dead = .307% mortality

That 0.3 % not 3% if we multiply the Stated number by 5
