I think we have all seen the statement made. Even people who pretend to be smart people have said it.

Mask wearing, social distancing and other steps to stop COVID-19 have also curtailed influenza


Scientific American. That sounds official. Like their word should be all that's needed to close this case. They said it, slow folks repeat it. But for some reason, they don't stop to think about the logic behind it. Well, we are about to do just that.

Differences between Covid and Flu:

English version updated 30 September 2021 - COVID-19 and influenza (flu) are both infectious respiratory diseases, and they share some similar symptoms. However, they are caused by different viruses, and there are some differences in who is most vulnerable to severe disease. There are also differences in how the diseases are treated. It is important to know the difference between COVID-19 and influenza to better protect yourself. This Q&A will help you know the facts about COVID-19 and influenza and make informed decisions about your health.

So we know they are similar in the symptoms. We know they are caused by different viruses. We know they are transmitted the same way......wait what? Transmitted the same way? Well, the Flu virus must be smaller or larger than the covid virus, right?

eta:

Influenza virus particles have a size of 80–120 nm

www.sciencedirect.com...

SARS-CoV-2 articles by electron microscopy, different researchers have had varying results, but the diameter of the virus has been found to range between 50 nm to 140 nm.

www.news-medical.net...

How It Spreads
Both the flu and COVID-19 spread in similar ways. Droplets or smaller virus particles from a sick person can transmit the virus to other people nearby. The smallest particles may linger in the air, and another person can inhale them and become infected.
Or, people can touch a surface with viruses on it, and then transfer the germs to themselves by touching their face.
People infected with the coronavirus or the flu may not realize they are sick for several days, and during that time can unknowingly spread the disease to others before they even feel sick.

so they are similar, spread the same way, but masks and distancing totally erased one of them, but cannot stop the other? No, come on now, you are joking, right? If the two are similar in size, and means of transmission, how on God's green Earth can the same masks, and the same protocol work almost flawlessly on one, and not do much at all to stop the other?

A year full of social distancing, mask wearing, hand washing and staying at home to prevent coronavirus spread rendered the 2020-2021 influenza season practically nonexistent.

What a wonderful coincidence, I was just reading through an article that had me facepalming hard.

I present to thee, further proof that people are utterly stupid beyond reproach -- "Ermahgerd, how'd the flu rise again??"

Flu rips through University of Michigan, bringing CDC to campus to investigate spread



ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Influenza is sweeping the University of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus, with 528 cases diagnosed at the University Health Service since Oct. 6.

The outbreak is so sudden and large – 313 cases were identified the week of Nov. 8 alone, and 37% of flu tests that week were positive – that it has drawn the attention of federal health leaders.

A team of investigators from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be on campus this week trying to learn more about the spread of the virus and the effectiveness of this year's flu vaccine.


You can't get rid of this stuff, folks. But you can sure look stupid scratching your head trying to figure out why masks didn't kill germs any.

Until you are vaccinated then covid reverts back to just a cold or flu to protect the pro-vax push.

Versatility is also a "V" word.

Yep, just read this. Perhaps these students (presumably all Covid Vaxxed)
have weakened immune systems. Fast spread, over 300 students,
CDC is investigating.

It won't be good, the only "fix" is more vaccines.

This is what it is coming to, probably 4 vax jabs a year?

It never went away.

Here in the UK lockdowns have ended a while back now.

Folk have stopped wearing masks in supermarkets , pubs have reopened and folk are not really socially distancing so much.

It's not exactly rocket science, is it?

Even on God's Green Earth, is it? No?

Some of us have been cowards who wiped their asses with cash money for quite some time, long before you still thought about dancing at poles. I tend to call them capitalists.

Masks work to impede air flow.

Try this; put on a reasonable mask and try and blow out a candle. Usually, you can't.

So, any sneeze, or cough, laden with a virus, also can't travel distances through a mask.

Also, flu didn't 'go' anywhere: Past Seasons Estimated Influenza Disease Burden - CDC. What happened was it took time for people to compile the statistics.

Did you just use a nebulous Bill Nye experiment in attempt to prove your point?

An experiment that also stated how many extra factors can change the result?

Really? You are implying the influenza is as contagious as cov2? Lol, what a joke, you certainly seem to be on a crusade.

Particle size is only one part of the equation. Of course you know that, but you want to Spin a narrative because you are insecure about having something on your face.
