How many people die from the flu each year in the U.S.?
"The number of people who die each year from flu-related causes in the U.S. is 8,200 to 20,000."
That's a normal, non CV year. Yes CV is worse. A lot more than normal are going to die. But lets be sensible and kind to one and other.
Here is another article worth a read:
"The death rate from seasonal flu is typically around 0.1% in the U.S., according to The New York Times.
Though the death rate for COVID-19 is unclear, most research suggests it is higher than that of the seasonal flu.
In the study published Feb. 18 in the China CDC Weekly, researchers found a death rate from COVID-19 to be around 2.3% in mainland China. Another study of about 1,100 hospitalized patients in China, published Feb. 28 in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that the overall death rate was slightly lower, around 1.4%."
