Ok well, how about the fact that there was no flu season last year. You know that as well as I do but admitting it might go against the narrative.
How about last year. At this time last year we were in the middle of a lock down. Wash your hands, social distance, wear a mask, and a flu vaccine. Done. What happened? No flu. Apparently our preventative steps worked for the flu. Now we have another tool in our arsenal against covid and that is the vaccine. Any reason to doubt that a similar result might occur if we were all vaccinated?
I guess we should have been locking down, distancing and masking every flu season since it took its first life. How selfish we all are...

^^ you really think the vaccine is the cure for covid ?? if it was then every vaccinated person would never get covid again, but they still are..
Thank you for bringing that up. I did mention 3 other things that also kept the flu at bay. People still got the flu last year, but at a much reduced incidence. Not one thing will prevent the flu, or covid, but a well armed, well armored soldier going into battle might still step on that landmine. So should you go naked into that battlefield?

The flu, like covid will always be here. Protection is the best preventative. If you live totally off grid, you are probably safe and do not need a vaccine. Nor do you have the need for money or work.

Right, it just disappeared. Makes perfect sense that not a single person catches the flu and everyone has covid instead. Now that they have the wool pulled over your eyes the flu returns, how convenient!

That tool you speak of is a princess auto special, I'll wait for the snap-on version to hit the market.

2,000 flu cases last year, down from 35 million.

Does anyone actually believe that?

Yup....the power of the MasK and social distancing......

Mask wearing, social distancing and other steps to stop COVID-19 have also curtailed influenza...... Influenza viruses are transmitted in much the same way as SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and they are less effective at jumping from person to person.

Were they testing for influenza and pneumonia to the same degree as Covid19??? Hmmm...

^^ no..read it online, same place as you get your info that you preach whenever you get a chance..

and actually you can google this and see that many doctors etc said that once we open as a society that the regular Flu will be extremely be brutal..not all bugs are deadly and we need them ...ever heard of antibiotics being abused when not necessary and not working any longer ??

and if you believe that all the Data that we have seen or been told is 100% correct than you is just a happy camper living on fumes bro... [icon_lol2.gif]
