    Default One thing that makes no sense about flu vs influenza

    Supposedly the covid is not only more contagious but more brutal.

    But the flu is no joke. I’ve had the flu and it has wiped me out. I know people in their 20s that say when they got the flu, it was like the life was sucked out of them.

    And yet so many people with the covid didn’t even know they had it. But then they’ll say that’s what makes it more contagious because it’s so mild.

    Well if that’s the case, then how could it be worse then the flu in terms of individual experience? Something doesn’t add up. When you have the flu, you definitely feel it. And you can tell it’s not a cold. But with the covid-19, many just get the sniffles.

    We aren’t getting consistent answers from the experts.

    Coronavirus is the biggest hoax of the 21st century, it is literally just a strain of the common cold and they have been many different coronaviruses before covid-19, and yes much more people die of influenza than this shit

    This year at least 150,000 Influenza deaths
    Compared to 25,000 Corona deaths

    What i've heard


    People who have healthy lungs and good immune systems dont know they have it sometimes...The people who should be most worried about covid are people who smoke cigs,live in high pollution air cities,people who are not active a lot so they have weaker lungs,people with compromised immune systems, ect (you can figure out the reasons for weaker lungs/immune systems)





    be safe and get right with the Most High.

    If you still don't understand how much more contagious and lethal this strain of coronavirus is, you never will. Go out in public and touch a few door handles and rub your eyes plz.

    80+ % of people have absolutely no symptoms, and 99+% survive so your threats are pretty empty.

    All the NBA players who caught it beat it without so much as a sniffle.

    Why don't you use some of that critical thinking and ask yourself how many more people would have died if the entire world didn't shut down?

    We have 40.000 deaths with extreme measures taken some weeks into the pandemy. If we'd take the same measures for influenza the deathtoll would also drop.

    Most doctors who dealt with it say it appears in 2 phases with most peiple not reaching phase 2, which is the one hospitalizing and killing people. If you get the flu you're really sick from the start.
