Why do people quote the figures for Flu and Pneumonia deaths against Covid 19.
CDC figures 2017-2018 (the latest figures they produced) between 12,000 and 79,000 deaths from Flu. FOR THE YEAR.
CDC figures for Pneumonia for 2017 (latest figures) 49,157 deaths FOR THE YEAR.
Covid 19 deaths (as far as we know) average 60,000 deaths FOR THE FIRST 3 MONTHS of 2020.
That would equate to 240,000 for the year if the virus is constant.
