Experts are crediting “lockdowns and new health habits,” after UK flu numbers dropped over 95% in what is a 130-year low.
“Out of 3.9 million patients at 385 GP practices across England last week, only 35 had the flu,” Sky News writes.
According to Yahoo News, “Medical experts said flu appears to have been ‘almost completely wiped out’ after rates plummeted by a whopping 95%.”
Mainstream media claims COVID measures and increased publicity about the importance of taking the flu vaccine have contributed to this drop.
However, the increase in vaccinations has been minimal compared to the drop in flu cases.
Meanwhile, in America, similar data suggests flu cases are being counted as COVID-19.
“Just 136 people were hospitalized with the flu from Oct. 1, 2020, through mid-January, compared to nearly 5,800 at this time last year,” according to the CDC.
The US went from a flu test positivity rate of 19% during September through February of 2019 to just 0.3% between March to May – a trend that remains.
While school closures, stay-at-home orders and other gathering restrictions have surely played a role in reducing flu cases, a 95% drop is remarkable.
Additionally, if these measures intended to stop the spread of COVID-19 are allegedly minimizing flu numbers, why are coronavirus cases continuing to surge?
