1.There are vaccines and antivirals for the flu.

2.It is not as contagious as the covid disease.

Really I wish contagious diseases only killed the idiots who think they know better than the scientific community.

If flu is less contagious than covid-19 then why are 14 times more people dying everyday of flu in the UK at the moment, seeing as the viruses spread in much the same way?

It's not a matter of knowing better than the scientists, I've not seen a single scientist say covid-19 is more contagious than flu. Do you have a link to that?

We also now have plenty of different treatments for covid-19, which is one of the reasons deaths have decreased so much.

The flu has been around for a long time.It has had the chance to spread in a far larger part of the population.Covid is a novel virus that did not have yet the chance to spread as widely.Take a look at Italy though who was devastated by covid (some 36,000 deaths) after failing to contain the original infection.And compare Italy with Greece which took drastic measures early and counts a mere 393 dead.Even if you adjust for the different populations (Italy's 60 million vs Greece's 11 million) Greece has managed to drastically reduce the casualties with careful planing.

Italian politicians were calling this a hoax back in April and May.

ITALY KNOWS ITS A HOAX

Below is an honest analysis of a Bloomberg Coco article about the deaths in Italy from March 18, 2020.

This guy is entertaining.

Coronavirus - Italy Deaths...The REAL Story

Wuhan China was the epicenter of public protests pushing to to fix the horrendous pollution problems in that region.

Protests Over Incinerator Rattle Officials in Chinese City (July 2019)

The Chinese govt has a strong interest in faking an outbreak to suppress public dissent.

Who knows how many righteous protesting people (who deserved to breathe clean air) were swept up and disappeared as "Covid".

These are the real crimes of the Chinese state in this fiasco.

Coco is a 100% hoax PsyOp.
A scamdemic in every sense.

Nope, we get new strains of flu every year and it dies down in the summer so less people are infected.

You have no idea right now whether the number of deaths are due to measures taken or due to the different genetic make ups and general health of the populations. Japan had a very weak response to the virus but very few deaths. Northern Italy had many more deaths than the South with the same measures in both areas. It could well be people in Greece are simply fitter and thinner than those in northern Italy.
