Conundrum: The Mysterious Case Of Disappearing Flu

“…for some mysterious reason, influenza, as of April in the US, dropped to zero and continues at zero in the latest flu season.”
– Banson Wilcot PhD

“At the end of 2020 many statisticians, doctors and independent scientists noticed something amiss about this extraordinary year,” writes Banson Wilcot PhD. “The Office of National Statistics, Public Health England shows that the numbers for death from influenza and those from Covid-19 are askew.”

“An observation has been made that, for some mysterious reason, influenza, as of April in the US, dropped to zero and continues at zero in the latest flu season.

“In light of the apparent missing influenza, claims have been made that masking, distancing, and lockdowns were completely effective against influenza, but then there is no talk about its failure in stopping Covid-19, which is a virus of the same size and transmission mode.

“Then, we are told that Covid is still around because people are not masking and such properly, which means influenza should also still be around in the US. Since these are infectious viruses, how can these restrictions be effective against one virus and not the other? It does not make sense.

“It is also easy to find that US states with strict mandates have the same rates of PCR-positive cases as those who do not. The conjecture can be made that influenza cases are largely reported as Covid-19, based either on a positive PCR test result or on symptoms alone.

“In the US, it is clear that there has been a monetary incentive for diagnosing the disease and encouraging hospitalizations. (Emphasis added)The cessation of other medical procedures and tests during this period clearly is going to lead to increased overall deaths. The fact that there appears to be no excess deaths despite this, indicates that the C-19 virus itself was not as lethal as they claim.

“Overall, the death rate in the UK is not out of line with the normal death rates from other years and clearly not close to the highest in the last 22 years. It is difficult to consider influenza deaths when there appears to be a bias toward categorizing influenza and other causes as Covid-19 deaths.

“Every year and, for that matter, all year long, there is a population of health-critical individuals who may be overwhelmed by a flu-like illness and open to pneumonia complications. The questionable Covid-19 PCR test appears to be keeping the presence of Covid-19 alive, possibly detecting viruses of the current flu season.

“The WHO is now admitting that that this test can be 97% false positives or more, with higher processing cycle numbers.  

“A little exploration of the Office of National Statistics, Public Health England shows that the numbers for death from influenza and those from Covid-19 are askew.  They show 4649 cases mentioning influenza and only 380 with influenza only. This means 92% of these cases had other complicating conditions. However, the same week they report 6057 cases mentioning Covid-19 and 5387 mentioned only Covid-19, with 89% being Covid-19 only.

“This defies logic. What happened to pneumonia? (Emphais added) It is well-known that flu-like illnesses open one up to pneumonia but, according to the above numbers, 89% of deaths from this virus were ONLY from this virus. That does not correlate with the many reports of illnesses with complications and does not at all correlate with the US CDC’s report that only 6% of their Covid-19 related deaths were from Covid-19 only, which means 94% had comorbidities or complications, such as pneumonia.”

  1. A dear friend of mine passed away last night “due to COVID-19.” When she was hospitalized she was tested positive for the virus and (amazingly) two days later she was tested again and tested negative. How is that?

    Her lungs were full of fluid, she had numerous blood clots in her brain, and her brain stem cancer had returned. Yet she died of COVID 19? I think NOT!

    • Maybe the brain stem cancer was already returning and therefore she became more susceptible for covid-19. Hence, in that scenario covid-19 wasn’t factually the cause. These tests aren’t developped for diagnosis, I read that many times.

  2. we have the same bullsh*t here in aus
    no ones got flu it seems ,a few kids with colds,
    and yeah so if masks and distance n handwashing halted all flu then it should have done the same with the covid so called cases too.
    one security guard in melb got crook this week
    the entire state is now back to masks in all shops again
    not JUST the metro but even us 100s of Ks away rurals
    bloody stupid!!

    • The problem, Laurel, is that we are not standing up to this BS. We Australians tend to just accept what is thrown at us, believing that our Governments are looking after us (best country in the world and all that).

      I’m in Queensland which admittedly has been less ridiculous about all this than the more totalitarian-minded States, but even here they trot out masks if ‘necessary’. When you see the sort of thing that makes it ‘necessary’, you have to wonder. Until we stand up to these draconian measures as a nation (or at least a State) we will never be free of them.

  3. ps claims being made of male low spermcount for months after covid
    so what they couldnt cull it semi sterilises?
    wonder if they EVER checked out “normal” flu victims for the same effects?
    bet they havent

  4. Exactly the same for the numbers in Britain/England. The powers that be has removed flu figures, and EVERYTHING is now about the virus.

  5. True! The Flu is gone. Of course, they have not been passing out the Flu virus shots like they done over the past many years, consequently, my customers have not passed it along to me. So, “NO”, I have not had the Flu or the Chinese Wuhan Virus!

    In other interesting news:
    They claimed it wasn’t “Engineered” — Yes it was!

    “We will use S protein sequence data, infectious clone technology, in vitro and in vivo infection experiments and analysis of receptor binding to test the hypothesis that % divergence thresholds in S protein sequences predict spillover potential.”

    They purposely mutated the virus. It is unknown if the virus escaped the lab, or they experimented with the local population, However, China locked down their cities and travel, yet knowingly allowed people to fly all over the world spreading the virus!

    Dr. Anthony Fauci is an adviser to President Donald Trump and something of an American folk hero for his steady, calm leadership during the pandemic crisis. At least one poll shows that Americans trust Fauci more than Trump on the coronavirus pandemic—and few scientists are portrayed on TV by Brad Pitt.

    But just last year, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the organization led by Dr. Fauci, funded scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other institutions for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses.
    In 2019, with the backing of NIAID, the National Institutes of Health committed $3.7 million over six years for research that included some gain-of-function work. The program followed another $3.7 million, 5-year project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses, which ended in 2019, bringing the total to $7.4 million.
    Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.

    SARS-CoV-2 , the virus now causing a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in bats. U.S. intelligence, after originally asserting that the coronavirus had occurred naturally, conceded last month that the pandemic may have originated in a leak from the Wuhan lab. (At this point most scientists say it’s possible—but not likely—that the pandemic virus was engineered or manipulated.)
    The NIH research consisted of two parts. The first part began in 2014 and involved surveillance of bat coronaviruses, and had a budget of $3.7 million. The program funded Shi Zheng-Li, a virologist at the Wuhan lab, and other researchers to investigate and catalogue bat coronaviruses in the wild. This part of the project was completed in 2019.

    A second phase of the project, beginning that year, included additional surveillance work but also gain-of-function research for the purpose of understanding how bat coronaviruses could mutate to attack humans. The project was run by EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit research group, under the direction of President Peter Daszak, an expert on disease ecology. NIH canceled the project just this past Friday, April 24th, Politico reported. Daszak did not immediately respond to Newsweek requests for comment.
    The project proposal states: “We will use S protein sequence data, infectious clone technology, in vitro and in vivo infection experiments and analysis of receptor binding to test the hypothesis that % divergence thresholds in S protein sequences predict spillover potential.”

    In layman’s terms, “spillover potential” refers to the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans, which requires that the virus be able to attach to receptors in the cells of humans. SARS-CoV-2, for instance, is adept at binding to the ACE2 receptor in human lungs and other organs.

    According to Richard Ebright, an infectious disease expert at Rutgers University, the project description refers to experiments that would enhance the ability of bat coronavirus to infect human cells and laboratory animals using techniques of genetic engineering. In the wake of the pandemic, that is a noteworthy detail.

    Ebright, along with many other scientists, has been a vocal opponent of gain-of-function research because of the risk it presents of creating a pandemic through accidental release from a lab.

    There is more — You should read the rest!

  6. Of course we’re being lied to.
    Of course the virus isn’t as deadly as “they” make it out to be.

    This is a test to see how willing the average person is to rolling over and letting a central government, whether county, state, or national, control their lives and restrict basic human rights to dignity, companionship, and commerce.

    It will be interesting to see how all of the other fatality rates for MI’s (myocardial infarction, AKA heart attacks), cancer, and other lower respiratory illnesses are tallied up by the medical bean counters, because if THOSE are hugely out of whack from previous years, then there is no excuse for any further restrictions and every last one of these globalist elites who are pushing big corporate control by eliminating the small businessman’s right to exist should be dealt with swiftly.
