Here is a scary headline nobody talked about

"Feb 05: 2020: The number of U.S Flu cases increased by 4 Million over the last week. Since January 25th, there have been over 19 million cases of influenza, 10,000 deaths, and 180,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. "

Imagine what the exponential growth curve looked like on this!

This is before the flu season had even peaked and happened to be a much milder season than 2017-2018. At about this time, Covid-19 took over the news and fears of many. China's death toll was still significantly higher from the flu as it stands now.

I think the fear all hinges on the unknown. They really don't know if this thing is going to be seasonal, but I heard a doctor say yesterday that corona viruses are seasonal. We also don't know the bottom denominator - how many people really have it or have had it. The actual death rate is a long ways from being known.
