Has Covid killed off the flu? Experts pose the intriguing question as influenza cases nosedive by 98% across the globe

[...]

In the UK, our flu season is only just beginning. But since Covid-19 began spreading in March, just 767 cases have been reported to the WHO compared with nearly 7,000 from March to October last year.

Yeah good point man, this totally fits with the fact that Illinois was down to ~500 new cases a day in June but has been steadily increasing since September. Wonder what happened in September. I bet it was more futile human behavior.



The weather started to change. This is not hard.


In September? Not really, but you're on the right track, I'm sure you'll get there soon enough.

The school teacher is fixated on school. Got it. Don't worry mick, your worthless zoom lessons while sealed in your home are safe now that the new normal has arrived.

So which is it, does staying sealed at home do nothing against a "highly transmissible virus" or do people who can stay at home have nothing to worry about.

It's not really a question I'm just here to point out that your dipshit cynicism doesn't stand up to even the mildest scrutiny.

People can't stay at home for the most part. Check your privilege.

People are incapable of staying at home or people are not being given the option to stay at home? I thought we were talking about human behavior in a "restrictive state."

People have to leave their homes to survive. I know this is hard for a pampered academic like you to understand.

Gotcha, so certain human behaviors DO stop the virus but not everyone is able to behave the same way. Glad we could clear that one up.

Yes if everyone never left their homes that would be highly effective.

Oh I definitely don't think we need to do that. But now that we've established that when you said "human behavior can't stop a highly transmissible virus," you were wrong, we can move on to how to think strategically about the human behaviors that do stop the virus. Why do you think cases went up in September, Bryan? Surely it's not because everyone started going to the grocery store more often.

Feel free not to answer that, I'm not really interested in debating this with you, I just wanted to focus on how wrong you were.

The only human behavior that can stop the virus is complete isolation. Not possible.

Did everyone go into complete isolation this summer when numbers were plummeting? What did they do for food?!?

There are tons more tests being run, the weather is changing, kids are back in school, people don't give a shit anymore. There are a lot of reasons why the casedemic numbers are booming.

A summer day you might have 30k tests run. Today I think there were over 80k run. People were also outside.
