    The explanation is simple BT. I opened the window (which they keep recommending for helping combat Covid) and influenza. So there it is it’s at my house.

    Apparently all our isolating and social distancing has helped reduce the spread of flu and the vulnerable that would have died from it are being killed by Covid first. There's also probably some overlap in statistics regarding Covid and flu.

    Everybody, except me, has had the vaccination against flu and the flu knows this so it only attacks those few of us who have not been vaccinated. It has missed me for over 40 years!

    It does not exist anywhere in the world does the old Flu, same as Bronchitis. We have created a miracle and cured it by default. since waring masks in primarily indoor venues in Ireland from August onward the infection rate for Wuhan has gone up 8250% yes 8250% as at yesterday. The figures are from the WHO. Amazing. Remind me who was it that in March last year said masks have virtually no impact? oh yes Dr. Fauci.

    thats the smoking gun - BT...agent convid and the corruption of excess deaths - there's little of other because of the flawed test/results and manipulated data - that says all is of a lethal infective agent instead of a normal seasonal endemic bug and other conditions.

    unreliable tests...It's happened before.

    Faith in Quick Test Leads to Epidemic That Wasn’t

    It was the start of a bizarre episode at the medical center: the story of the epidemic that wasn’t.

    For months, nearly everyone involved thought the medical center had had a huge whooping cough outbreak, with extensive ramifications. Nearly 1,000 health care workers at the hospital in Lebanon, N.H., were given a preliminary test and furloughed from work until their results were in; 142 people, including Dr. Herndon, were told they appeared to have the disease; and thousands were given antibiotics and a vaccine for protection. Hospital beds were taken out of commission, including some in intensive care.

    Then, about eight months later, health care workers were dumbfounded to receive an e-mail message from the hospital administration informing them that the whole thing was a false alarm.

    At Dartmouth, when the first suspect pertussis cases emerged and the P.C.R. test showed pertussis, doctors believed it. The results seem completely consistent with the patients’ symptoms.

    Dr. Cathy A. Petti, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Utah, said the story had one clear lesson.

    “The big message is that every lab is vulnerable to having false positives,” Dr. Petti said. “No single test result is absolute and that is even more important with a test result based on P.C.R.”
