The CDC's "Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality Surveillance" website reports that there have been more than 80,000 P&I (pneumonia and influenza) deaths during the current 2019-2020 flu season.
This is far more than is currently being discussed by government leaders or the media. We heard this on a John Hoover video, had trouble believing it, so we went to the CDC website and downloaded the data (you can do the same, but we've done it here).
In 2020 alone, there have been nearly 43,000 P&I deaths. And we didn't shut down society, shelter in place, curl up in the fetal position under our kitchen tables, only wandering out to go to Wal Mart, or Home Depot, or for drive thu fast food.
And it appears that there was an accelerated outbreak of the flu starting in January, about the time it is likely COVID came into the country.
