IsrailfanI would rethink your post if you find yourself agreeing with DD on anything CV-19.
Please read first and if needed, re read, before responding with drivel about the USA.
You need to re read what DD wrote in his earlier post.
He was talking about Australia not the USA.
Covid is not as deadly in Australia as the flu is, there's no right wing conspiracy theory claims there.
I don't find myself agreeing with DD very much at all, but he's right here.
The seasonal Flu is normally an uncontrolled virus that spreads amongst the community at will due to its lower death rate of ~0.33%, so tolerated by the govt as its impact on hospitals is limited. Annually around 300,000 Aussies get the flu.
CV-19 in Australia is a heavily limited community spread virus with a known death rate of 2.5 to 3.5%, depending on the country.
Sweden with a population of 10m and comparable to Australia in culture, living standards etc has 600,000 cases with 12,000 dead, scaled up to Australia hats 1.5m infected, 30,000 dead.
