Here's how you can tell the numbers are bullsh*t...

The number of flu deaths this year is LESS than 7,000...



Now here's some previous years....NEVER below 10,000, and only one year under 20,000...In a land where the population grows by millions each year...

trust me you do not want this disease. you'll do everything you can to stay away from people, wear masks whatever, if you have a good case of it and get over it.

I think you're right. but even with the numbers the CDC gives,
look at the number of total deaths for those under 34 years old.
Lest than 2500 out of our whole population.
Even up to 45 years it's less than 7500 death.

But people over 75 around 133,500 deaths, that's well over half of the total deaths.
Between 45 and 74 are about 40% of the deaths (if my math is right).

A fact that few address when trying to handle the issue. the "experts" and MSM push a ONE SIZE FITS ALL approach. LOCK DOWN EVERYONE! VAX EVERYONE!

Question, why risk a new vaccine on the young when they are not likely to have problem. Why quarantine the young, or get mad at them for parties or Church?
they are basically not a high risk group AT ALL.
i suspect the number of deaths from alcohol or car accidents probably go over the number of deaths from covid.

As far as the numbers themselves go, I also suspect there are various areas where they are... questionable. Especially in the light of financial incentives for hospitals to have more covid patients.

Also It seems the the CDC "estimated" numbers on FLU deaths is a lot different than the one they placed in the covid1984 chart.
"Conclusion
During the 2019-2020 influenza season, CDC estimates that influenza was associated with 38 million illnesses, 18 million medical visits, 405,000 hospitalizations, and 22,000 deaths. The influenza burden was higher in young children (0-4 years) and adults (18-49 years) compared with a recent season with the 2017-2018 season, a recent season with high severity, and provides evidence to support how severe seasonal influenza can be at any age..."

CNN and certain politicians have been giving out Covid numbers every 2 hours or more every day for the past 8 months trying to instill fear and demand compliance to various rules, literally changing our way of life and expecting us to take new medications to "fix" the problem.

How is it callous for us to stop and objectively review some of the sad facts and get some realistic perspective on what they've been talking about?
and ask sober questions?
If i'm not mistaken you were a a nurse i think right?
So you should you know that doctors often discuss horrific medical issues in a way that's very frank and matter-of-fact, it doesn't mean they don't care.

Just because people are capable of discussing things in a serious, clinical manner does not mean they callus.

Some people think and act with their emotions, without consideration to facts or discussion of causes.

You are a member of the latter. Bless your heart.
