FWIW.. nowhere near as deadly as "the worst year for flu" as you put it.
(Yes, I'm on your side, here - COVID is much more serious than some people want to admit - but dial back your rhetoric)
Okay, I did.
2019-2020 estimate 24,000-62,000
that's a pretty wide range and is not based on reported deaths, but on a mathematical model . It's also a 95% UI, which means (correct me if you took stats more recently than me) we can say with 95% certainty that no fewer than 24,000 and no greater than 62,000 deaths.
Let's compare the previous years estimates:
2018-2019 95% UI (26,339-52,664) estimate: 34,157
2017-2018 (46,000-95,000) estimate: 61,000 a very bad year!
2016-2017 (29,000-61,000) estimate: 38,000
Estimates from previous years:
Average of those years is around 37,000. So I'll say it again, in 6 weeks this disease killed more than twice the number the flu does in an average year, with nowhere near the number of infections. Way more than the worst year for flu even.
There is no COVID-shot
There is no TamiCOVID
There is no heard of people who were already immune.
look up on your phone how many died of flu last year. You may be surprised.
