COVID-19 Has Killed More Americans Than The 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic


Daily Mail: COVID-19 has killed more Americans than Spanish flu: Number of deaths hit 675,446 - more than the total number who died in 1918 

* As of Monday, 675,446 people in the U.S. have died from COVID-19, surpassing the number who died from Spanish flu during the 1918 pandemic 

* However, the death rate was much larger in 1918 because the total U.S. population stood at about 105 million compared to 330 million in 2021 

* This means there were 642 Spanish flu deaths per 100,000 people compared to 204 Covid deaths per 100,000 Americans 

* Additionally, half the black population were unaccounted for while calculating 1918 mortality statistics, suggesting black deaths were undercounted 

* Scientists say it is 'distressing' to see so many Americans die in an era where modern medicine, such as vaccines, are available compared to 1918 

The United States' COVID-19 death toll has surpassed the number of Americans killed during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. 

As of Monday afternoon, a total of 675,446 people in the U.S. have died from Covid-related causes, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. 

That's more than the estimated 675,000 fatalities attributed to the Spanish flu more than a century ago.

I agree, 6:33 (misfit girlie boy) posted an useless article.

Now the 6:46 posting is an article about what Sharyl Atkinson found. That is a must read.

I know a guy who went into hospital for a motorcycle accident. They tested him for COVID-19 when he first went in, during the middle of the stay and just before he left the hospital. Test negative 3 times. As he was going out the door he saw his paperwork said he tested positive. He asked his doctor. The doctor said he tested negative. Then he found out it was the administrator who marked him positive because of the $40,000 the hospital gets for each positive covid case. Interesting

And Lanny says follow the money and he is correctomundo!

Many if not most hospitals survive on elective surgeries. It is how they make their revenue, so they have a profit and stay in business. Well, hospitals cleared the decks and prepared for action. They postponed elective surgeries and were heading into red territory until Congress threw them a sop in the from of COVID money.

Essentially what's been said above nails it. There's not much to add. Essentially deaths from this in the US are wildly overstated. Due to the misuse of flawed PCR tests that tend to err in the direction of "false positive " total cases are probably overstated as well.

On the beginning of this Fauci estimated deaths at about 2.2 million if we didn't do the draconian lockdowns he wanted. As a percentage of the population, this works out almost identical to the 1918 flu pandemic.

I don't think this is an accident. Fauci really had no idea but wanted a "fear" and "wow" factor in order to get what he wanted. Unfortunately former president Trump fell for his scam hook, line, and sinker without asking the normal questions that would normally be expected from someone in the position he held. I doubt he fully understood the ramifications of what he's wrought. I'm pretty someone in China did understand and possibly communicated this policy course of action to him.

The biggest mistake of former president Trump's life was not only listening to Fauci but Essentially slavish worshipping him. It got him nothing but horrifically bad policies and further contempt from the "cool kids."

You're missing it B Poster. They are counting anyone with any detectable trace of COVID as a COVID death or case, when clearly the person dies of something else or is asymptomatic.

They are counting stuff as COVID deaths or cases, where a person has no detectable COVID. Administrators count so that the hospitals stay green. They regard it as a white lie. They are balancing the books of the hospital, but totally fucking up policy and policy debate.

More and more whistle blowers coming forward. Do not go to hospitals that follow the protocol outlined in this segment. Talk to your doctor about exactly this!!
