Yeah, I suspect a lot of these "experts" are so caught up in their fields and desire to be part of a pandemic, they can't see it actually isn't one. They want it to be a pandemic for personal and professional validation more than anything.
I also think they know it isn't as bad as they thought and are trying to save face as they can't just come out and be like "we screwed up" because the damage to the global economy was so great. I refuse to believe these medical professionals can't grasp basic statistics.
The actual study doesn't have any images of coffins. You're misrepresenting the facts.
The authors are from Harvard and Emory University. If you aren't aware, Emory is directly affiliated with the CDC, and Dr. Del Ray has been a leader in the effort to fight COVID, not to mention, advocating for healthcare workers.
You aren't interested in analysis, or in actually evaluating the study for facts (how could you be, you're not talking about the actual study) you're intent on "debunking" anything that doesn't fit your (apparent) chossen narrative that COVID is "just like the flu."
Then you want to cry because the summary of the actual study you're critiquing actually tries to get documented information on flu deaths by going to the actual death certificates. You know, actual data, not the "well we all know" BS that you're spouting.
Nope. You want to argue belief, as does most of the gang ... dont' pretend you're actually making comments about the science, though.

Science is for f@#s, man.
National provisional counts include deaths occurring within the 50 states and the District of Columbia that have been received and coded as of the date specified. It is important to note that it can take several weeks for death records to be submitted to National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), processed, coded, and tabulated. Therefore, the data shown on this page may be incomplete, and will likely not include all deaths that occurred during a given time period, especially for the more recent time periods.

They should add healthcare workers, meat packing employees, nursing home staff, cops, and the Navajo nation to the list of most threatened...
Last I heard, the Navajo nation has the highest number of cases per capital in the country.
And, Montgomery alabama along with another city have either run out of ICU beds or are dangerously close to.. cant remember which one is floating around between sorry we dont have a bed for you and my arent you the lucky one we have a couple of beds today...
