You may have heard recently that Joe Biden beat his granddaughter at Mario Kart.
Well, a similar thing happened with the coronavirus and the flu.
The coronavirus-battered US has enjoyed an unusually calm flu season, showing the lowest figures in decades. The lack of influenza likely stems from enduring restrictions – or Covid-19 wrestling out weaker germs, experts believe.
The ongoing pandemic has had an unexpected effect on the US healthscape, with the conventional flu being almost completely wiped out. Figures from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show a sharp drop in influenza cases occurred last April – and the figures remain extremely low ever since.
The 2020-21 flu season has essentially not even happened at all, with only a few hundred cases detected in months. Since late September, only 1,380 cases of various flu strains have been detected across the US.
“This is the lowest flu season we’ve had on record,” Lynnette Brammer, an official with the CDC, told AP on Thursday.
I’m not going to say “I can’t believe people believe this”, because I can believe that anyone will believe anything now.
But you understand what is happening: all the flu cases are being recorded as coronavirus cases, because coronavirus is the flu.
This is what they do: they take things that already exist, and make them into a crisis.
- Black people were always poor and always had a high crime rate
- There have always been hurricanes and forest fires
- Thousands of people have always died every year from the flu
Yet now, all these things are crises, and the only solution is to surrender all of our rights and give all our money to billionaires and banks.
