In other news, "We've always been at war with Eastasia."
They've gotten to the point where they expect people to swallow anything they spew.. no matter how stupid it sounds.

"According to data published on the CDC's website, U.S. clinical health labs and public health labs reported just 2,124 confirmed flu cases between Sept. 27, 2020 and May 15, 2021 (though the true number of people who contracted the flu was likely higher).

Those 2,124 cases represent an extreme decline in the spread of the flu compared to the 2019-2020 season. Between October 2019 and April 2020, the CDC estimated that at least 39 million people contracted the flu."

Although I do agree that the CDC isn't the most honest team in the rowboat race, they have NOT provided any data for 2020-2021 yet...

Past Seasons Estimated Influenza Disease Burden

Also, i clicked the link in the OP's article with the words "public health labs" in the article, and it linked to data from 2019-2020...

Once again, I believe many cases of the flu were intentionally documented as covid to inflate the numbers, but this article is very foggy...

Ok.. I hear you.
but can i ask question about your wording.
you say you looked at a link the "OP".
others here seem to use the same term often, but i always thought "OP" meant "OPINION PIECE" as distinct from News Story.
I guess I can understand calling EVERY news story an "OPINION PIECE" but is that what people do nowadays?
or does OP mean something different?

BTW the links went back to the CDC

Flu Activity
Did new flu viruses circulate during the 2020-2021 flu season?
... During the 2020-2021 flu season, there was very low circulation of seasonal flu viruses. During September 27, 2020–May 22, 2021 in the United States, 1,899 (0.2%) of 1,081,671 clinical samples tested were positive for an influenza virus (713 ...influenza A and 1,186 ... influenza B). During that same period, public health laboratories reported 61.4% of influenza positive samples were influenza A and 38.6% of positive samples were influenza B. The majority (52.5%) of influenza A viruses were H3N2, and the majority (60%) of influenza B viruses were of Victoria lineage.

....

More information about how flu viruses change is available.

OP means "Original Post"...When I say "the OP's article", I'm referring to the link that you provided when you started the thread...

Although, in this case, I'm in error...It's actually the link in your THIRD post I was talking about...the "Denver Channel"...

In most cases, serious disease and death due to COVID-19 or the flu can be prevented by vaccines. In addition, mask-wearing, frequent and thorough hand washing, coughing into the crook of your elbow, staying home when sick and limiting contact with people who are infected are effective safety precautions. Physical distancing limits the spread of COVID-19 and flu in communities.
Quote:
The COVID-19 situation continues to change, sometimes rapidly. Doctors and scientists are working to estimate the mortality rate of COVID-19. At present, it is thought to be substantially higher (possibly 10 times or more) than that of most strains of the flu.
