The 1918 influenza pandemic killed roughly 675,000 Americans. At present, the total US deaths assigned to the Covid virus is almost exactly 25% of that figure.

It should be noted that the influenza pandemic's most devastating period was after August, 1918. 292,000 US deaths were reported in the period September-December, 1918.

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.

The Spanish flu was way......... more devastating when you calculate the population back then

The pop of the U.S. was only 103 million back then
 
Yep. If people behaved like intelligent adults instead of morons it’d be under control within a month.

Perhaps the BLM protesters that gather would take heed of that?(LOL)
 
Say children dont die from coronavirus.


Just say it

Children do but the rate is so low it’s really not a consideration. What is important is that they are asymptomatic carriers.

Many Americans believe the death toll would have been much higher were it not for President Trump, his son-in-law Jared Kushner. and the Vice President Mike Spence as well as the intervention of Republican governors.
 
They’re a small minority compared to all the other morons.

True, but for awhile there, they were Front and center(wink)
