Posted in response to Derek asking How does the Covid death rate compare to seasonal flu/virility/mortality here: https://members5.boardhost.com/xxxxx/msg/archive/1589539515.html
"...unclear how it helps." claimed Willem.
"Deaths caused by an annual flu are usually estimated from that years excess death statistics when compared to a mean of past averages: there are various ways this is done all with slightly differing parameters & results, but to see the real difference between whats happening now and any annual flu death toll from the previous nine years its enough to go back to this raw data because each years excess deaths in total include any and all caused by an annual flu mortality. You can visually compare any proposed seasonal flu spikes in the previous nine years with whats happening presently.
-As can be seen, there's no real comparison in terms of scale from any event in any of these years."
