Coronavirus aka Covid-19 virus aka Chinese virus

It seems that the American news media does not want to do their home work and tell you the whole story about previous pandemics occurring in the past 100 years.

1968 – 1969 * Hong Kong flu also known as 1968 flu pandemic was a flu pandemic whose outbreak in 1968 and 1969 killed an estimated one to four million people globally.
This outbreak actually began in mainland China before spreading to Hong Kong.

1957 – 1958 * Asian flu, originated in Guizhou, China.
This pandemic caused two to four million deaths worldwide.

1918 – 1919 * Spanish flu, The death toll is estimated to have been anywhere from 17 million to 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million, making it one of the deadliest pandemics in human history.
Historical and epidemiological data are inadequate to identify with certainty the pandemic’s country of origin.

It should be noted that WHO estimates 250,000 to 500,000 people die of seasonal flu annually.

It seems that covid-19 is little or no more dangerous than the number killed by the flu each year.
To date there is no known effective covid-19 medical treatments or vaccines available to treat those infected with covid-19.

The main difference between flu virus and covid-19 virus is we have better treatments and flu virus vaccines to battle flu out brakes.

  1. news channels and social media have blown it completely out of proportion, thank you for this post and putting things in perspective. let’s think of those who have lost their jobs and don’t know if they can pay the rent or have enough food until the end of the month, thanks to lockdowns.

  2. You can always count on the media to sensationalize…that’s why they’ve even lost credibility in stating the weather forecast. You have to do your own homework, check a variety of sources, preferably stay away from fake news/SM, use common sense, and make up your own mind. Unfortunately, in our polarized state of affairs, the masters of the media will use anything and everything to keep humanity in fear…and thus, under control. Thanks for reporting!

  4. I disagree that it is not more dangerous than the regular seasonal flu. This is hitting people waaaay harder than a regular flu. I don’t know where you live, but I live in a small state and there are already more than 3,500 dead. My daughter’s boyfriend, a personal trainer, athletic, healthy eating person, had it. He had a very high fever for three weeks straight, could barely walk up the stairs and it took over 2 months for him to recuperate.
