Where Did The Flu Go?

I don’t know, it just disappeared, like “poof.”

Flu has virtually disappeared from the U.S., with reports coming in at far lower levels than anything seen in decades.

Experts say that measures put in place to fend off the coronavirus — mask wearing, social distancing and virtual schooling. I read that “virtue signaling” which makes more sense — were a big factor in preventing a “twindemic” of flu and COVID-19. A push to get more people vaccinated against flu probably helped, too, as did fewer people traveling, they say.

Another possible explanation: The coronavirus has essentially muscled aside flu and other bugs that are more common in the fall and winter. Scientists don’t fully understand the mechanism behind that. Of course not, scientists these days don’t understand a lot of things that don’t fit the coronavirus narrative.

The numbers are astonishing considering flu has long been the nation’s biggest infectious disease threat. In recent years, it has been blamed for 600,000 to 800,000 annual hospitalizations and 50,000 to 60,000 deaths flu-related hospitalizations, however, are a small fraction of where they would stand during even a very mild season, said Brammer, who oversees the CDC’s tracking of the virus. – ABC News

As we “non-scientists” suspected all along, it appears the “flu” may well have been conflated with the “Covid” all last year. According to Legal Insurrection even the CDC doesn’t trust the CDC testing/tracking anymore :

At the end of last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a concerning laboratory alert. The agency announced that after December 31, 2021, it will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel. The test came out in February 2020 to detect the SARS-CoV-2 (i.e., the coronavirus causing COVID019 only.)

CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.

Since they had no flu to track last year the “scientists” don’t know what to put in this year’s flu vaccine – but what do you want to bet they encourage everyone to get a flu shot this year anyway?

And the Covid “vaccine” which isn’t really a vaccine still allows it’s recipients to infect others with Covid that they themselves can’t get because…they are vaxxed!

 My head is swimming in circles.

  1. Something to think about. Some so-called experts say it’s the mask, others think it’s the vaccine. Covid is a flu, only a bit stronger than most. I remember the Hong Kong Flu outbreak in 1968 that killed half million in the US and Canada. My family came down with it at the same time, everyone but me. At 72 years of age, I have never had the flu and attribute that to good whiskey, go figure.
