I live in the Bronx. I have nurses and social workers who work in nearby hospitals. They have never seen anything like this. There are morgues set up in refrigerated trailers outside the hospitals. A friend of mine is a social worker at a Bronx hospital she caught Covid19. She said ,” I have never been this sick with severe headaches and body aches a fever for 11 days so far”. It is definitely worse than the flu because there is no treatment, there is no Tamiflu or vaccine, but there will be . There is no one to blame… Read more »

We have been raised since we were kids to believe that for almost every disease we have a treatment that will significantly slow or mitigate a disease process. They take time to develop. Obviously some are more effective than others. But we still depend on modern science to produce these substances. Enter Novel Covid 19. We don’t yet have a vaccine for it and up until now, no real chemical treatment. I believe that is what caused the panic. BUT THAT IS CHANGING RAPIDLY. At least one and possibly more reasonably effective vaccines are in line. The Israeli one starts… Read more »

I believe the main difference is that the Corona is more virulent and with the fast spread, our hospitals and healthcare services can be totally overwhelmed. That is why the flue does elicit the same response of our government. At this time although frustrated, I believe President Trump’s Administration is stepping up and doing all they can to slow down what could and still may be a total disaster, particularly when you consider to damage it has been to our economy.

The alleged media is hyping it to hurt the President, and the USA.

It is going to take a least 10 years to regain the freedoms we have lost due to this press induced panic. The numbers as you showed in this article prove the stupid panic to be rediculous.

I have though all along that the media is spreading fear as a means to bolster ratings. The left will use it to criticize the administration. It’s a win win for them. The left and media doesn’t care what happens to the economy or to Americans, as long as it furthers their factions.

I sprinkle a little powdered garlic on my food almost every day and haven’t had a cold or the flu since except one time I got a cold, I went without garlic for about 4 or 5 days, garlic will be depleted out of your body in 3 to 4 days, so you need a little almost every other day to be protected, it kills the cold, and flu viruses, and will kill the corona virus too, a container of powdered garlic should last a family about a year that’s how little you use, had colds and the flu for… Read more »

Due the math, 2% death from Corona or .oo6% death from the flu.

Yes I believe the Corona virus is being blown out of proportion . I also believe the virus is being used to undermine President Trump’s economic legacy. I believe precautions should be taken on an individual level and let the healthy function normally.

It’s better, everyone forgets about the deaths caused by the regular flu.

I think the Democrats are using this disease which is not much worse than the flu to control the general population. Cuomo has already said that this is the “new normal” in other words when the hysteria dies down, we will still not be able to gather in public, go to restaurants, or visit loved ones in hospitals or nursing homes, without government permission. For those who think Socialism is great, well get used to this kind of treatment.

You didn’t post all the facts. The deaths from the flu are accumulated since Sept 29th until the end of March. The Coronavirus didn’t take a life in the U.S. until January. You are comparing apples to oranges.

The flu has not filled hospitals or required the use of ventilators or spread as rapidly as the coronavirus. You left out important information. So you argument is flawed.

I have thought since day one that there are probably
more people who suffer from the flu than this virus, and
we never hear about that. So, thank you for the facts.
It is good to be cautious but correctly informed.

……………………….Hi. I think you wrote an excellent article, very easy to understand. I happen to be an RN and I have been asking myself the same question? I know the flu kills thousands of people every year and nobody really talks about it…..so whats the difference?

The Corona The Corona-19 virus appears to be more lethal than the regular flu *many,many times), It may have the same number (+ or -) of cases as the flu if not contained . That can;t accurately be determined. But, if unabated, there would be many, many more cases (see Ohio vs. New York statistics) and many, many more deaths than the same number of flu cases. I do not like the quarantine, but it is saving many lives in the U,S. It would run its course without the quarantine, but we would have about ten times the number of… Read more »

I have been practicing medicine for over 23 yrs, and never have we responded this way to virus. You need to publish we loose 250 million to TB with antibiotics to help fight it’s also, 2009 H1N1 lost more than 200,000 to this virus and ni shut down. We still lose more to cancer, 2 daily in the US, and we are not shutting down the food and beverage choices in US…. all about the money and Democrats..

2.2 Trillion Dollars, that is the difference. The crooks should be incarcerated for manipulating the public and causing the panic. Just so they can steal more money. 500 Billion non accountable and no oversight. This is the end of the USA.

I have come to the conclusion that this entire panic is designed – I am not sure if it is merely a test run or if it is a full blown psyops exercise, but regardless, government agents have trampled upon people’s human rights, their media propaganda has induced panic and fear among the people. Federal and state tyrants have shut down our society and seized powers under the threat of this pandemic that will only harm the poor and most vulnerable in our country. THEY can easily take a month off work, quarantine themselves in their summer vacation homes, while… Read more »
