Health authorities in England have announced that not a single case of influenza has been detected this year, with one professor suggesting that mask wearing should be kept in place during winter to drive down flu deaths to “zero.”

Statistics don't lie
Liars use statistics...
People believe this crap. I’ve had more than one person I know look at me and say with a straight face, must be the masking and sanitizing.
If mask-wearing leads to zero flu deaths, why doesn’t it work with roma deaths? See the logical fallacy.
Wearing a mask is always a personal option. What they mean is "mandatory" mask wearing.
You don’t go from 30 million flu infection each year to mere thousands and say with a straight face “must be because of hand washing and masks”
Covid-CCP would then be negligible
It’s so weird that the coronavirus surge and decline in the US occurred during the normal flu season...
All you have to do is believe!
news flash: living causes death. To avert death—end life. /sarc
Not as good as the bull scat our gooberment has been feeding us for the past year.
Really fed up with those lying bastards in Washington.
COVID is the apex predator in the world of flu germs.
How spiritually bankrupt does a person have to be to embrace masking their face ?
Robots of the world.....unite !
They really DO think we’re stupid.
If the “pandemic” ever ends and the flu and colds are back just attribute any death because of them to something else, perhaps auto accidents! I mean it works the other way, all deaths during “pandemic” are the result of covid19, or so we have been told. /s
Sounds like the lumped any flu cases over into covid to me...
Amazing what happens when you don’t test for something...
I really do know a guy who died in a car accident and Covid-19 was on his death certificate.
We should have the data that tells if the patient died ‘From’ COVID or ‘With’ COVID. Has anyone seen that?
“If mask-wearing leads to zero flu deaths, why doesn’t it work with roma deaths? See the logical fallacy.”
And they are experts.
This is why they have to ban and censor.
The masks are not what is causing this, nor are the lockdowns causing this.
Science tells us many things. First, that the flu is about the same size as COVID, so masks block the flu about as well as they block COVID, which for surgical masks, and for the way most people wear masks, is not very much.
Second, the primary point of masks is to keep coughing and sneezing from spreading germs widely; this would apply equally to COVID and the Flu.
COVID is also not that much more infectious than the flu. Flu is between 1 and 2, and Covid between 2 and 3, although finding it closer to 2, or maybe a bit smaller.
Point being, if the masks were able to completely wipe out the flu, they would also almost completely wipe out COVID — but they did no such thing, COVID exploded in places wearing masks, while Flu dissappeared.
There is a scientific process not quite explained, where one infectious disease essentially blocks out others. That is what scientists think happened with COVID> It’s not that COVID exposure protects you from the flu, since they are not yet willing to admit many of us already have t-cell immunity, even though that is how a rational person would interpret that drop-off that started in January.
It’s simply that the world won’t support two infectious diseases.
IN most cases, what they see is that, occasionally, a new strain of flu will appear, and at the same time, the old strain will completely disappear.
In which case there’d be no Covid either, since they are similar viruses.
Once upon a time, flu was generally judged by the symptoms. It’s a middle to lower respiratory tract infection, whereas colds (rhinovirus) are an upper respiratory tract infection. In other words, tests for the flu virus were rarely done.
I’d suspect that a lot of our “Covid dead” actually died of the flu. But they don’t test for that, and they do test for Covid...so all this means is that the person who tested positive has ben exposed to it, may have had it, and then contracted the flu and actually died of that. But there now no testing for the flu.
