Last Year’s Flu Season Was the Deadliest In Four Decades, But Prompted Zero Shutdowns

Brittany M. Hughes – MRCTV.com April 29, 2020

As states across the nation lengthen COVID-19 shutdown restrictions and the White House continues to urge social distancing measures at the advice of health officials, the CDC revealed this week that more than 80,000 Americans died last year – but not from the coronavirus.

From the seasonal flu.

In fact, according to the reported numbers, last year’s flu season was the deadliest since 1976, with far more fatalities than the 56,000 who died in 2011-12. In addition, more than 900,000 people were hospitalized with the flu last year alone.

Among those lost to the flu last year were 180 children, a record high for a non-pandemic flu season.

“The thing that was most notable about last year was how high in terms of activity things were,” said Nordlund. She explained that last season, unlike previous seasons, flu did not strike one region of the country and then move across the land. “There were three consecutive weeks when the entire continental US was affected by flu at a very high level,” she said.

While the flu season is measured from November through the end of March, with cases typically starting in one area of the country and then gradually spreading outward, CDC Spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said that this year, there was a higher concentration of flu cases nationally over one three-week span in January and February.

“There were three consecutive weeks when the entire continental US was affected by flu at a very high level,” she said.

Despite the high prevalence of flu cases, the record number of fatalities both among adults and children, and the concentrated outbreak across a short window of time, no economic shutdowns, social distancing mandates or store closures were mandated as a result of the seasonal flu.

  1. Obviously an agenda here. It is unfortunate that most of people ( Sheeple ) just turn on the hypnotic networks (Main Stream media ( MSM ) )from their TV rather than go to alternative sites many of which can at least open their minds. Most people I have talked to about this 80,000 dying from the Flu look at me as if I was crazy. The point here is the incessant barrage of propaganda being fed to the Sheeple who devour it… lock stock and barrel. This comparison to the present “pandemic” ( actually Plandemic ) with out question….and beyond question demonstrates an agenda here. Furthermore it has already been demonstrated from multisources as well as the lax directives to U.S. doctors to conclude a Covid19 death even if there was no tests for the virus done…….that the total count of Covid19 deaths has been stretched beyond the actual kill rate. Furthermore the Central banking system, wall street, Corporations and their compliant governments would never…..would never…..allow such a complete and coordinated shutdown of the economic system in fear of a total collapse….UNLESS there was an outlying AGENDA HERE.
