Americans are being asked to believe the implausible. Methinks the current pandemic is a test of political gullibility.
Says a recent TV news report: "Any way you cut it, doctors say there are virtually no flu cases at all this season, a phenomenon being called one of the great mysterious vanishing acts of a virus they've ever seen."
We are told the reason for that is because of flu vaccination combined with face mask use and other social distancing measures. But that would mean those measures are selective for the flu and not the coronavirus. Preposterous! A face mask can detect and filter out influenza but not coronavirus? If you believe this, I've got a bridge in New York to sell you.
Actually, the American Lung Association reveals (now taken off their website) that as few as 257, 411, 727, and 274 deaths from the flu occurred in recent times (see graphic at end of this report).
In other words, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been delivering bogus information about flu-related deaths for years in order to scare the public to get vaccinated. Very few deaths from the flu occurred in many years.
The often-quoted number is 36,000 flu-related deaths per year. The CDC was lying to the American public all this time. The annual flu epidemic was contrived. It never was. That is what the current pandemic reveals.
