Flu Data

Revised 2/3/22

It is impossible for me, one man, to sort of the vast flood of data about the Corona virus, its side-effects, vaccinations, and the politics.

I check Worldometers often to get a sorta big picture.

The Lockdown in March 2021 was world-wide, which tells me God made a sovereign move in history with huge lomg-term ramifications.

Time will tell. I feel my time is best spent studyng and teaching the Bible. See my web site annex.

An Update for 2022

I noticed you shared an article from CDC.gov when you talked about moving trends since Covid started, here: http://ldolphin.org/fludata.html

I've read that piece from CDC.gov, and it's pretty good. But we recently published an article about moving trends in the U.S. since Covid that’s much better. We start with some quick statistics that give you a sense of the trends. 

Our business helps people move their vehicles from state to state.  We analyzed our internal data, and realized that the number of requests to ship vehicles from Eastern states to Western states increased dramatically since the start of Covid.  We explore what causes that in the article. 

Here's the article if you want to take a closer look: https://www.jandstransport.com/moving-trends-since-covid/

Would you consider linking to our article? Anyone that’s trying to understand the impact that Covid has had on where people live would find it useful.

The Bigger Picture (May 25, 2021):

Abortion was the largest cause of death worldwide in 2019, ending the lives of an estimated 73.3 million unborn babies.

The World Health Organisation estimates that there were nearly 55.4 million deaths from causes other than abortion worldwide in 2019. Ischaemic heart disease was responsible for 8.9 million deaths, stroke 6.1 million deaths, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease 3.3 million deaths and lower respiratory infections 2.6 million deaths. Deaths from neonatal conditions of children after birth resulted in 2 million deaths, 1.2 million fewer than in 2000.

A study published in The Lancet estimates that 73.3 million abortions were performed in 2019.

Based on these estimates, abortion accounted for 57% of deaths worldwide in 2019. 

John Hopkins University estimates that in 2020 over 1.8 million people worldwide died from COVID-19.

From Brad Sparks 11/22/21:

Subject: Dr Peter McCullough Full Lecture on COVID, Treatment, Vaxxes, 4 Sept 2021, notes

Normally these would be called crimes against humanity, violation of the Nuremberg Code. 

-----Original Message-----

09:00 min. There have been no treatment trials. To this day there has been no earnest effort to try to treat Americans to prevent hospitalisations and death.

9:40 Our govt and other govts have not lifted a finger... anywhere, anywhere... to help people avoid hospitalisation.

11:00 You can't make this stuff up.

11:30 Australia, you know what they did? Early in April, a new rule. Imprisonment for doctors prescribing any outpatient treatments for C19. Since when do doctors face prison for helping patients with a simple generic drug?

12:45 I published the first article in the American Journal of Medicine on using drugs in combination, it went viral. So did second one. The most downloaded papers. 

14:30 All we heard about was the vax. No treatment, just wait for the vax.

15:30 He has 650 peer-reviewed papers. "I outwork any human being on earth."

17:00 Dec 10th hit, the "trusted news initiative". "We are only going to publish info that promotes vaccines." Facebook, Youtube came on board, this is all out in the open, the whole world knew they were only going to get one story and all others would be suppressed.

18:45 The vax MUST be safe. In medicine we have the principle "prima no nocere", "first, do no harm"!

22:00 These vaxes are different, they are not like tetanus or hepatitis vaxes.

24:00 The mRNA of the vax is not "one-and-done" as is the natural mRNA, it is made to last. It is a way of tricking the body into making spike protein. There is no way this is going to stay in the arm, it is going to go through the whole body.

25:45 They rushed to the market. They skipped safety studies.

27:30 The spike protein itself is now known to be dangerous. It is found in cells 9 mths later and passed down to daughter cells. These shots are lasting way longer than we thought. Found in blood and body fluids.

28:00 The Japanese are very discerning. They asked "Where does this go in the body?" They did studies that showed that the spike proteins concentrated in the adrenal glands and ovaries.

29:30 There is no external safety or ethics committee. We always have to have independent safety committees. Somebody has to watch them! Where are the committees? They don't exist.

30:00 If we exclude pregnant women from studies, we would NEVER use the product on pregnant women.

31:30 8 mths in, there is yet to be a press briefing from the FDA or the CRC re how the vaxes are doing. Which is the most/least safe?

32:30 By Jan 22 we had already crossed the line of concern for deaths. There was no mention of concern from the big medical schools.

34:00 From all the other vaccines combined we only had 150 deaths a year! We have had a sky-rocketing of deaths, 1600 deaths to Jul 9 2021, after the C19 vax. But they are just going full steam ahead. CDC and FDA doctors (this is not their role, there should be an independent committee) reviewed the deaths and said NONE of them were related to the vaccine. Including the people who have an allergic reaction and die right there in the vax clinic.

35:00 I got a sick feeling in my stomach. I think that was malfeasance. Wrong-doing by those in authority. You know how long it takes to review 1600 deaths? Labs, Xrays, charts? It takes about 2 yrs. Who are these CDC and FDA doctors? They don't hire many who are board certified.

36:00 To July 30, we have 12,366 Americans who have died after the vax, with allergies, heart attacks etc, we have lit up a safety scoreboard that is absolutely horrifying. It takes half-an-hour to do an adverse event report with a penalty attached to misreporting. You better believe that every single one of these reports is legit. 

37:30 86% of these deaths have no other explanation. About half the deaths occur within 48 hrs and the rest within a week.

38:30 The spike protein itself is lethal, designed to kill by the gain of function research in the Wuhan lab.

39:00 For some seniors this is too strong. The vaxes are very different. We should be told which vaxes are safer for seniors. The CDC is not helping us. People are being injured as the spike protein injures their organs after injection.

40:00 A research group did a separate analysis of the Yellow Card system in the UK, similar to the VAERS in the USA... they concluded that the vaxes are not safe for human use, so "pull them off the market".

41:30 There must be no pressure, no coercion, no reprisal. This is covered under the Nuremberg code after Nazi Germany. We must never allow people to be rail-roaded into a medical procedure.

43:00 Academia will only listen to the CDC and the NIH? Fine, lets see what they say. The CDC publication shows 2/3 of the people in an outbreak in Barnstable County in MA were fully vaxxed.

44:00 The Mayo Clinic Aug 2021 has protection from Pfizer down to 42% and Moderna effectiveness down to 26%. Moderna has three times the dose of Pfizer. How come nobody is talking about this? Data from 25k people, but CDC, NIH, and the media make no mention of this. Less than 50% protection from a vax is considered worthless.

44:30 The Israeli figures has Pfizer effectiveness at 17%. We have checked multiple times with the Israeli ministry. 86% of new cases are fully vaxxed. The peak is as high as before the vax.

45:45 Pretty clear the vaxed can catch and spread C19, and in one check, the viral load was 250x that of a regular infection.

47:00 People ask me: DOES VAX AT LEAST REDUCE MY CHANCES OF DYING? "I don't think so." They are not a shield against mortality.

48:00 If the vax allows the virus to live in some form (and it does), we are in trouble from mutations. We are now up to 82% Delta in the USA, some say 100%. It is less injurious (he explains why). There are now 20 additional mutations within Delta, this is to 'avoid' the vaccines.

51:00 Some say: "If some people die from the vax it is a small price to pay." 

52:00 The CDC has been telling us since May that the vaccines don't work. You know in all that time period they didn't report a single failure of natural immunity. But 1000s of cases of failed vax, people getting infected and dying.

53:00 Those who have taken it are not doomed. We have treatments. Here is the Early Sequenced Multi-Drug Therapy flow-chart. This is the most single relied-upon slide in the whole world (SCREENSHOT BELOW). He walks us through the protocol, doses etc.

53:30 Open the windows, the virus hates fresh air. Take the vitamins. Vit D, Zn. All the data suggests they are protective.

55:00 Treat the illness early at home. The great majority of the hospitalised have not received ANY treatment. We can now use Monoclonal Antibodies (MAs). The USA pre-purchased 500 million doses of these. Where are they?!

5:00 Gov. Greg Abbott got C19 after fully vaxxed, he got MAs. 80% are being un-used because of the commitment to NOT treat C19.

56:30 HCQ to this day is the most widely used treatment, and is supported by 250 studies showing it is beneficial. Too late once on  ventilator.

57:30 IVM another drug that works inside the cell, has 60 supportive studies.

58:00 After that we use steroids. Inhaled pulmocort inhalers, reduced the risk of hospitalisation by 80% in two randomised trials. I use Prednizone for pulmonary symptoms. Dramatic reduction in hospitalisation and death.

59:00 We must address the issue of blood clots. This is very important, with C19 the clotting system is revved up 1000x. Makes the blood system go wild. We must use FULL-DOSE aspirin, the Japanese use it for 90 days. 

59:30 After that we use blood-thinners, full dose. High-risk seniors, I am not fooling around with it, Lovonox, full dose, for a month to prevent heart attack or stroke. A blood clot in week 3, that's how people die.

1:01:00 We use drugs in combination. Covid-pneumonia is actually blood clots. Remdesivir won't work by then. There is no advantage to being in the hospital if we can get these drugs to people at home. We lose control, there is no negotiation in the hospital. People  can get an oxygen concentrator.

1:03:00 Italy, doctors: We can get down to zero hospitalisations with drug combinations.

1:04:00 Early treatment is the key. Go to a telemedicine consult if your doctor is not ready to treat you immediately. Of the 640,000 who died in the USA so far, we estimate that 80% of them would not have died if they had received early treatment. DO SOMETHING EARLY!

1:05:00 WHY weren't you updated weekly? When is the last time the news gave news of early treatment? Why weren't you updated weekly by the CDC? People are in a trance right now. "I am going to get Covid, I am going to die." It is a treatable illness. All the data suggests it is treatable.

1:06:45 The vax program is making C19 worse. As long as we can stay out of the hospital we can get through it.

1:07:00 Natural immunity is terrific. You don't have to be scared. Do an inventory of who is naturally immune for health carers, army operations etc. The CDC never ask if you are naturally immune or not.

1:09:00  The 'rebel' doctors organisations (AFLDS etc) formed because of the failure of public medicine.

1:09:30 He chokes up when he says that he doesn't have it in his moral or ethical DNA to let the virus slaughter his patients. He can't do it. Other doctors have let their patients die. "They can't look me in the eye". And the pharmacists will not fill the prescriptions.

1:11:30 Their eyes are clouded, their hearts are hardened. They are doing bad things to other people. People are about to lose their jobs from the mandates. Indonesia is vaxxing by force. The US military is talking about it. Things are getting out of control.

1:13:00 We are in a very special time in the history of mankind. Whatever is going on, the entire world is involved in this. It appears to have a program. Everything I have talked about tonight, is happening to promote as much fear, isolation, suffering, hospitalisation, and death in order to get a needle in every arm. At all costs. That's what's going on. There are no exemptions. No concern for natural immunity.

1:14:30 This isn't stopping until people somehow come out of their trance. I talk to psychologists. We are in a mass psychosis. Evidence is not computing to people. The courts don't care. There is no justice. The only thing left is to be unbreakable, for you to understand that there is something deeply wrong going on in the world.

1:17:00 Hugh Hewitt came to interrogate me. He is a lawyer. Finally he said, what if someone listens to you and doesn't take the vax and dies of C19, wouldn't that be on you? That's called a moral hazard. The real moral hazard is not giving treatments, and it is giving a dangerous vaccine.

1:19:30 C19 preys on the seniors. The young get sick from the vax. He tells a story of a pharma rep he met whose 22 yr old son was hospitalised by the vax, and may have to drop out of school. The spike protein damages the organs. We are going to see neurology clinics overwhelmed with young people. You know what it takes to hospitalise an 18 yr old kid? "I can't get the myocarditis to stop!" This kid's heart (one of his patients) is rotting out before my eyes.

If the Vaccines Work, Why Aren't They Working?

By Brian C. Joondeph, M.D.
In the movie Moneyball, Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane queries his team of scouts when discussing a prospective player, “If he's a good hitter, why doesn't he hit good?” The scouts all have solid explanations, at least in their minds, of why a prospect might be a good hitter, from the sound of the crack of the bat when they hit the ball to the player’s good looks.
These explain why the player should be a good hitter, but what if the numbers, from batting average to on-base percentage, tell a different story? The question Billy poses is obvious in its simplicity, good hitters should hit good. And if they don’t, then perhaps they are not really good hitters.
What if we ask the same question about COVID vaccines, rephrased as “If the vaccines work, why aren’t they working?”
This is the time when I must add the necessary disclaimer that I am not anti-vaccine, having been personally fully vaccinated almost a year ago. Nor am I offering medical advice, only an analysis of current news of COVID cases rising in many highly vaccinated locales, seemingly against common sense.
Some readers have asked why such a disclaimer is necessary. I am a practicing physician, although I don’t treat COVID patients, administer vaccines, or offer medical advice regarding COVID to my retina patients. But today, just having an opinion can be hazardous to one’s livelihood.
The American Federation of Medical Specialists makes it clear, “Physicians who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.”
Hopefully asking thoughtful questions and observing how the medical authorities like Dr. Anthony Fauci have changed their own positions on vaccines is not considered “misinformation.” Or that citing the CDC and major news organizations won’t be considered “disinformation.” In the 1950s, x-raying pregnant women was standard practice, and questioning that harmful procedure, were such a thing to be done in the 1950s with today’s climate now might be considered mis- or disinformation.
If you think such medical censorship is all conspiracy theory, ask Dr. Mary Bowden, a Houston ear, nose, and throat specialist suspended from her Houston hospital for tweeting about vaccine mandates and ivermectin.
Back to COVID vaccines. The CDC website states, “COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and free.” Those three words are all relative. Let’s quickly unpack them.
VAERS is the “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System.” From their website, one can compare adverse events from COVID vaccines from the past 11 months they have been available to adverse events from all vaccines for the past 30 years, 1990 and onward.
Note this is 11 months versus 30 years of side effects and in most categories, the cumulative cases are similar between the two groups, despite a 30-fold time difference of data recording. Of note, hospitalizations, deaths, permanent disabilities, and birth defects were greater for 11 months of COVID vaccines than they were for 30 years of all other types of vaccines – such as shingles, influenza, measles, mumps, hepatitis, and so on.
VAERS is voluntary reporting. For a variety of reasons, all cases do not make it to the VAERS database. How much is this underreporting? VAERS did their own analysis about ten years ago and found, “Fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are reported.” Their words, not mine.
This means adverse events could be happening far more frequently than what we are being told by the corporate media who don’t even report VAERS's current data. What if these adverse events are 10 or even 100 times more common than VAERS reports? To paraphrase Billy Beane, “If the vaccines are safe, why aren’t they safe?”
Are they effective? The CDC answers an emphatic yes,
COVID-19 study shows mRNA vaccines reduce risk of infection by 91 percent for fully vaccinated people. Vaccination makes illness milder, shorter for the few vaccinated people who do get COVID-19.
Does the real world agree and support the CDC’s optimism? Gibraltar is more than fully vaccinated, they are 118 percent vaccinated, meaning that many fully vaccinated have had booster injections too. Yet this headline doesn’t jive with CDC assertions, “Most vaccinated place on Earth told to cancel holiday plans amid an exponential rise in COVID cases.”
Pick another country: “93% vaccinated Ireland has gone into partial lockdown, including midnight curfew.” This recent headline too, “COVID surge in Singapore despite 80 percent vaccination.” Or from the U.K. where the Spectator reported, “The rates of Covid infection per 100,000 are now higher among the vaxxed than the unvaxxed.”
Closer to home it’s much the same, “Vermont has the highest vaccination rate in the country. So why are cases surging?” My home state of Colorado is singing from the same hymnal, “Colorado’s COVID hospitalizations jump again as virus’ statewide death toll surpasses 9,000.” Colorado’s 12 and up population is over 80 percent partially or fully vaccinated.
If these numbers are misinformation, tell that to big media. I am quoting their headlines. Will their licenses be threatened?
The CDC on its website claims, “Research provides evidence that COVID-19 vaccines are effective at preventing COVID-19.” Yet cases in highly vaccinated locations are surging, now almost two years into the COVID pandemic. As Billy Beane might say, “If the vaccines work, why aren’t they working?”
Last is the “free” claim. Nothing from the government is “free.” Recipients may not be charged but that is not the same as “free.” The government produces nothing and therefore is not able to offer anything for free. They confiscate money from those they lord over and redistribute it back to those from whom they took it.
The Pfizer vaccine costs the government about $20 per dose, with the other COVID vaccines in the same ballpark. Some 445 million doses of vaccine have been administered in the U.S. to date. That’s $9 billion right there. Spending on research and development has been estimated at $40 billion, pushing the total north of $50 billion, and likely much higher given the many hidden or non-transparent costs.
If these numbers seem off, major vaccine maker Pfizer expects $36 billion in COVID vaccine revenues in 2021, in the same range as the above numbers. While the vaccine may be free to the person getting jabbed, someone is paying the tab for the vaccine, syringe, and time of the person administering the shot. It always works that way – nothing is really “free.”  As Billy Beane might say, “If the vaccines are free, why do they cost so much?”
There is nothing wrong with the medical establishment saying, “we don’t know” or “we’re not sure” about COVID prognostications, rather than being cocksure about everything until reality turns their pronouncements upside down. Gaslighting the public, being wrong more than right, doesn’t engender confidence.
Those who preach “follow the science” seem to neither understand nor desire to actually follow the science, instead letting politics replace science with our COVID policies often not following the science.
Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged the new vaccine reality in a New York Times podcast last Nov. 12,
They are seeing a waning of immunity not only against infection but against hospitalization and to some extent death, which is starting to now involve all age groups. It isn’t just the elderly.
When others observe and acknowledge this reality, they are ostracized and shamed. How long has Dr. Fauci known this? Last May, the CDC said that once vaccinated, you can return to a normal life. How is that working out?
Instead of transparency, we see this, “FDA wants 55 years to process FOIA request over vaccine data.” Is this, “part of the FDA’s commitment to transparency” as the FDA itself claims? This is the same FDA that took only 108 days to review Pfizer’s clinical trial data, deeming it safe and effective enough for FDA approval. But for the public, the FDA needs 20,000 days to “review” the same data before public release.
The published concept of “imperfect vaccinations enhancing the transmission of highly virulent pathogens,” meaning that vaccinating during a pandemic can create new vaccine-resistant virus strains, is never discussed. Neither are off-label therapeutics that while not a panacea, may save lives. Instead, the government and medical establishment balkanized the world, vaccinated versus unvaccinated, us versus them, the worthy versus the lepers, creating further division in an already divided society.
Despite the shaming and ridicule, here we are, almost two years into the COVID pandemic, with a mostly vaccinated population, and hospitals and ICUs are overrun with COVID cases. This pandemic should be in the rearview mirror, yet in some respects, it is bad as it was last year. Leaving Billy Beane to ask, “If the vaccines work, why aren’t they working?”

Subject: Stigmatizing the Unvaxxed Needs to "Stop," it's "Wrong and Dangerous" -- Medical Letter in The Lancet

This is a letter from a medical professor to The Lancet, the world's leading medical journal, not the editorial position of the leftist Lancet itself, but it is interesting they published it instead of suppressing it:

Subject: Vaxxed in England Dying at >2x (Twice) the Rate of Unvaxxed (ages 10-59)
Reply-To: b cs <rb47x@aol.com>

The fact-fakers are lying through their teeth on this, dragging in misleading lies and irrelevancies.  I carefully checked the official UK ONS (Office for National Statistics) spreadsheet released Nov 1, 2021, (see attached) before I sent this article out today, and Alex Berenson is a very careful reporter, former NY Times reporter, who has defected to our side so to speak, a turncoat to the leftist media. 

These are rates or percentages of the appropriate total for the age group and vax status, and the total category numbers change as vaxxing progressed in England in exactly the way we would expect. 

The UNVAXXED had an all-cause death rate of 0.9 per 100,000 in the week ending Sept 24 but the VAXXED had an all-cause death rate of 2.2 per 100,000, or over 2x or more than twice the UNVAXXED death rate that week of 0.9 per 100,000.  Spot checks of other weeks show the same pattern of the vaxxed in England dying from all causes at over 2x the rate of the unvaxxed since May 2021 (but at about the same rate before May) as if some lethal side effect of the vaxxing started kicking in, in late April, though it has been tapering off somewhat since week ending May 21 which had a vaxxed death rate high of 3.3 per 100,000. 

Vaccinated English adults under 60 are dying at twice the rate of unvaccinated people the same age

And have been for six months. This chart may seem unbelievable or impossible, but it's correct, based on weekly data from the British government.

The brown line represents weekly deaths from all causes of vaccinated people aged 10-59, per 100,000 people.
The blue line represents weekly deaths from all causes of unvaccinated people per 100,000 in the same age range.
I have checked the underlying dataset myself and this graph is correct. Vaccinated people under 60 are twice as likely to die as unvaccinated people. And overall deaths in Britain are running well above normal. I don’t know how to explain this other than vaccine-caused mortality. The basic data is available here, download the Excel file and see table 4:

From Steve Connelly (8/12/21):


Vladimir Zelenko is a Ukrainian-American family physician known for promoting a three drug cocktail of hydroxychloroquine, Zinc and Azithromycin as part of an experimental outpatient treatment for COVID-19 that he has promoted as the Zelenko Protocol. --Born: November 27, 1973 (age 47 years), Known for: Promoting hydroxychloroquine-based treatment of COVID-19 . --Wikipedia

From Brad Sparks (10/16/2020):

This NatGeo data (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2020/05/graphic-tracking-coronavirus-infections-us/) is largely bogus due to the massive increase in testing since May. We have had more than 100 million tests for COVID-19 administered since May and 10 million up to May. CDC assumes for planning purposes a possible false-positive rate of 5%. Scientific American has used the 5% figure to illustrate how massive testing can paradoxically create the illusion that we have a larger problem due to false-positives. I found a COVID-19 false-positive rate of 3% since May, well within these 5% numbers (see further below).

Reality check is provided by the death statistics and hospitalization statistics. They both show that the July peak was barely half of the April peak. The false-positive inflated case statistics show the opposite, that the July peak was more than double the size of the April peak and thus the COVID-19 pandemic is getting much worse with time. This is nonsense.

I have fitted the death curve to the April peak in the case curve -- when the case statistics were more reality-based -- in order to correct the cases statistics with the death stats. Then I integrated under the curve to estimate how many cases are really false-positives.

This shows that US case statistics are inflated by about 3 million false-positives out of the 8 million total cases to date. This gives a modest false-positive rate of about 3% out of the 100+ million tests since May.

Case trends, up or down or level, the signs of the first derivatives, have followed the death curves and hospitalization curves fairly closely until last month. It is just the absolute magnitude or total numbers of cases per day or week that has been out of whack. The massive increase in testing to where we now have 1 million new tests per day seems to introduce errors such that even the up-down trends or positive/negative signs on curve changes now cannot be trusted on case statistics.

If you go to Worldometers and other websites, and you can see this even on the National Geographic website except that they don't have the mouse-over date labels, the case statistics using the 7-Day moving averages show a rise from the nadir point at the bottom of the valley on September 12. But the deaths and hospitalizations statistics show no such thing. The death curve is flat, not rising since August. The hospitalizations curve continues to plummet.

Deaths lag behind cases by about 2 weeks, so we should be seeing an upsurge in deaths for the last 2 weeks if the cases curve was valid. But we don't. (CDC hospitalizations data also lag behind cases by about 2 weeks due to data processing delays and the same point must be made, we aren't seeing any rise even after nearly 5 weeks.)

There should be an uptick in cases in October and November as I have been predicting for the past 6 months, based on standard patterns of epidemiology for flu seasons, where people start to go indoors in October and November and increase the infection rates. This is not rocket science and is a no-brainer. The cases should not be rising from September, the weather has remained hot, so something is now radically wrong and in error about our national COVID-19 case statistics.

Older Data



Total US Cases ---- Total Deaths ---- Total Jurisdictions
690,714 ---- 35,443 ----55


There were 8,920 cases of TB "provisionally reported" in the U.S. in 2019 with approximately 500 deaths. 
It should be noted that there are 10 million people globally who become ill with TB each year with 1.5 million dying from it.
It is said to be one of the main causes of death worldwide. (WHO)

CDC stats on the annual flu epidemics in the US put the current SARS-2 quasi-flu coronavirus into better perspective:

US ordinary flu deaths in 2020:  23,000+ deaths to date -- 38+ million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2019:  34,200 deaths (34,157) -- 35,520,883 cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2018:  61,000 deaths -- 45 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2017:  38,000 deaths -- 29 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2016:  23,000 deaths --24 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2015:  51,000 deaths --30 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2014:  38,000 deaths -- 30 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2013:  43,000 deaths -- 34 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2012:  12,000 deaths -- 9.3 million cases

US ordinary flu deaths in 2011:  37,000 deaths -- 21 million cases



The present world population is about 7.8 billion people and increasing exponentially

See https://www.worldometers.info/

This is flu season in the Northern Hemisphere and each year we fight as best we can some new strain of flu virus which will kill perhaps several hundred thousand people. The Spanish Flu of 1918 infected about 500 million, of a fourth of the people on the planet. About 50 million died! I found it helpful to look at the current numbers:

The Corona virus numbers so far: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

The flu season will soon fade as the weather warms up. But 20,000 deaths in (say) 40 days is only an average of 500 deaths per day whereas 150,000 people die of all causes daily. In 40 days 150,000 x 40 means 6 million have died of all causes while only 0.3% were deaths from the flu.

Of course health precautions are wise but look at the overall numbers! It’s obvious there is a lot of hysteria going on here. 

If 150,000 people die every day, what fraction knew Jesus and were saved? 10%?  No one seems to care. All that matters is this present short life of trouble. I believe therefore we should talk about a personal relationship with Jesus with the people God sends into our lives each day. We know He does not desire that any should perish. God is in charge of the big picture and we are quite safe in Christ Jesus.

Between 38 million and 54 million people have been stricken with the flu as of March 14, according to the latest CDC data.

Worst of the flu occurs in a period of about 10 weeks, or 2.5 months. 

Flu activity so far

According to Friday's Weekly Influenza Surveillance report from CDC, 47 states were experiencing widespread flu activity in the week ending in March 14, while Minnesota and Wyoming were experiencing regional flu activity, and Hawaii and Washington, D.C. were experiencing local flu activity.

By some indicators, this flu season is worse than last flu season. For example, the data shows the cumulative hospitalization rate for the flu so far this season is 65.1 per 100,000 people, compared with 48.8 per 100,000 at the same point last season.

CDC in its latest report estimated that there had been at least 23,000 deaths related to the flu as of March 14.

The CDC flu stats for the week ending March 21, 2020, are out now and they report for the 2020 flu season in the US:

CDC estimates that so far this season there have been at least 39 million flu illnesses, 400,000 hospitalizations and 24,000 deaths from flu. This means that about 3 million Americans now have the flu, at this moment, and 1,000 died last week and 1,000 died the week before and 2,000 the week before that, for a total of 4,000 deaths from flu in March alone.  The flu numbers are now dropping, indicating the flu season is ending.  CDC says the current season flu deaths could be more than double 24,000, as many as 62,000, due to uncertainties caused by incomplete reporting.

Comments from a professional in the area 3/31/2020:

The most common flu complication is NOT bilateral pnemonia as is the most common complication of COVID-19, and we have never been in the positiion of RUNNING OUT of ventilators to support artificial breathing from the seasonal flu.


Jesus governs all, but we have to take personal precautions as articulated by medical professionals and not our politicians.

This is not the typical seasonal flu -- I’ve been to plenty of choir practices and sung around sick people with minimal precaution without this happening:

This is not a matter of panic, but it is a matter of not sending misinformation from a position of authority, which is even more important.  We need to take extraordinary precautions until this is over. -- Medical Professional, MSEE Medical Imaging.

General Comments from Lambert Dolphin

If the flu season is assumed to last 10 weeks, or 70 days, 150,000 times 70 people will have died of all causes. This is 10.5 million deaths!

Those who died knowing Jesus are safely home forever.

If 150,000 people die every day, did 10% (or even 20%) die reconciled to God, knowing Jesus Christ? The rest? What happened to them? Does anyone care? Does God care?

"Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)

250,000 Americans dying this year of the flu? (Total US Population is 330 million). That is a net US population reduction of "only" 0.1%. 

Sin is way more infectious than any virus. We were all born infected by “the original sin virus”—and all of us are doomed to die. 

Jesus offers a full cure but who cares about Jesus? Or about us who know Jesus and are called to be living a non-monastic “separated life” of practical holiness?

“You must be Holy for I am holy says the Lord.”
The globalists would like to cull the world population down by a factor of 15. From the current 7700 million people on the planet to a manageable 500 million or so. 

The total death rate for our race is still a flat 100% and God has set a date for each one of us to leave this place and give account of himself to Jesus. 
“...but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.” (Hebrews 8:26-28)

“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,” (‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭1:8-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

We have already died if we belong to Jesus! 

“This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.” (II Timothy‬ ‭2:11-13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

“...how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard him...But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, saying: “I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.” And again: “I will put My trust in Him.” And again: “Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.” Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, 

...Jesus Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage...” (Hebrews‬ ‭2:3-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

God has allowed, or even caused, the present crisis! He is in charge of the big picture. He knows what He is going.
