    Is it still just the Flu?

    The U.S. has reached yet another grim milestone as the confirmed coronavirus death toll topped 400,000, just one day before President-elect Joe Biden is set to take the oath of office. The milestone comes just over a month after the country surpassed 300,000 confirmed COVID-19 deaths on Dec. 14, and only 17 days since the U.S. hit 350,000 reported deaths on Jan. 2, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University.

    If one were to minimize the current strain of coronavirus going around, saying "it's just a cold" would be more accurate given the type of virus it is. At least in 25 percent of common cold virus infections, the virus is some strain of coronavirus (the other primarily being rhinovirus). This is the reason why doctors speculate that some people have already had immunity to COVID-19 as they have had exposure to a similar strain in the past. Influenza and coronavirus strains aren't related in the least bit, which would make the comparison absurd.

    nah, it is way more than just the flu, and the SOB is mutating.

    Honestly, it’s pretty mild as compared to previous pandemics or what it could have been. Population growth adjusted numbers from the 1918 influenza pandemic would have us in the neighborhood of 20-30 million deaths by now. We are getting off “easy” with COVID, but I hope lessons learned from this will provide a much better response to the next one, which could be next week or 100+ years from now. IMO, if we had 30 million deaths by now it would not be politicized, and people would certainly be taking it MUCH more seriously overall (although there were anti-maskers during 1918-1920 too). I can’t even imagine if we had something like that now, it very well could result in a breakdown of society when people stopped going to work and the power, water, gas, food etc stopped being accessible. That’s when living in MTPockets land pays off
