Every year nearly 500,000 die worldwide from the regular flu. Think the media is overblowing this a bit.

Fish, thanks fpr posting those numbers, it quantifies for anyone half rational to see what I posted directly above yours.

Atlas, just an fyi, the flue "immunizations" are not as effective as the medical establishment would like us to believe. There was a really good article in the AARP magazine last fall exposing a lot of the truth here. More and more take the flue shot every year, but more and more people are getting the flue. I don't exactly remember the #, but the shot had a horribly low rate of working, I know it was below 50%. In our country alone, never mind 3rd world, 36,000 die of flue every year (that is well above the number who died in the Revolutionary war for example)....

I do of course condone what POTUS and the M-establishment is doing to fight C-Virus, but if I say the media is hyping C-Virus it is indeed an big-understatement. They do it because it puts butts in seats (viewers), and for the Lefty-Media it provides another vehicle to disparage POTUS with lies.
