The China Coronavirus Is Still Not as Dangerous as the Spanish Flu — By a Long Shot!

Back in June we reported that according to the latest data,US mortalities in 2020 were not materially different from the previous 5 years.

We posted updated data through week 34 in the 2019-2020 season.

The China Coronavirus is still not the Spanish flu – by a long shot
One in three people in the world were infected with the Spanish flu and between 20 to 50 million died. In the US 675,000 people died from the Spanish flu, out of a population of around 104,550,000.

Update: There was a report up earlier this week that claimed the annual deaths in the US was lower than in previous years.
That report has since been taken down by the author.
