Flu killing more people than Covid-19, and has been for months

Latest ONS figures show “pandemic” fatalities slowing to a trickle, and lockdown has nothing to do with it.

A report from the UK’s Office of National Statistics (ONS) shows that since at least June 19th, more people in the UK have died of influenza than Covid19.

This, of course, is despite the fact that “Covid19 deaths” are incredibly vaguely defined.

Under UK law a person only has to test positive for the Sars-Cov-2 virus at any point in the 28 days prior to their death for “Covid19” to be on their death certificate, a policy which totally ignores the fact the majority of Sars-Cov-2 infections are completely symptomless (and has already resulted in huge over-counts).

  1. Begs the question. If one has the seasonal flu and catch pneumonia because of the flu, then die from the pneumonia, what’s listed on the death certificate? I’ll bet it says pneumonia.

  2. From the chart at the UK government link, it looks as if the UK Flu deaths started to exceed the Covid-19 deaths sometime around mid-June.

  3. I did the flu surveillance for the County of San Diego for almost 3 years. That involved pulling data from death certificates weekly and summing up the total of flu deaths, which would get sent to the director of my department (Community Epidemiology, which is the department responsible for controling infectious diseases). That info would then get sent to state/CDC and then on to WHO who monitors flu throughout the world.

  4. This “virus” only exists because Donald Trump is President. It is a political virus unleashed to cost Trump the presidency in November..Don’t be surprised when after the election, if Biden wins, that the virus suddenly disappears.

  5. it illustrates that lockdown and face masks do not work. If they did the flu numbers would have been lower but they are tracking the average of other years.

  6. pneumonia following flu is known by nurses as the old folks friend. it kills many who are frail and ill and in pain but who just keep hanging on.
    problem is every swab done is designated a covid test for anything respiratory so theyre NOT testing for other possibles
    even the cold n flu cases should be right down as kids have been isolated from elders and kids are THE biggest spreaders of most colds n flu bugs
    the only people in my town that have had colds this yr are parents of kids with it.and it was minor sniffles for a few days type.

    of concern should be NEXT yr as weve all pretty much missed the yearly immune kicker from those same colds n avg flu, so may well get a fairly nasty bout of it when we do.
