"..The Pandemic that Killed 50 Million ......... In 1918, it is estimated that about 500 million people — or about one third of the world’s population — caught influenza, otherwise known at the time as the “Spanish Flu." ..".

So one in ten, or ten percent of those who caught it died from it? That seems high, although that virus was unique as it did target younger people.

Although Anti-biotics do not work on virus, they do work on bacterial infections the flu might invite to feed on the host. Pneumonia is the most common deadly bacteria to come in when flu provides the gateway. Penicillin was not discovered until 1928 and was not used to treat infections until 1942. So many treatment protocols and antibiotics have been developed in the past 100 years, that if the Spanish Flu outbreak had occurred today, the mortality rate would possibly also be one percent or less. As we learn more about the Chinese virus, our mortality rate will also decrease. In the eight or so months we have been living with this virus, we have adapted more protocols for treatment and the mortality rate has dropped some.

Also, there never was a vaccine for the Spanish flu administered to the general public. Just like the Spanish flu, and various flu strains today, we will just add the Wuhan Virus to the things we live with.

So initially the Chinese, WHO, and our media led us to believe that you could only get it from bats in the wet market. Then days later if you were near anyone you got it and if you got it it was highly probable you died. Worse than the problem under Obama that he did nothing about. Now we see that the CDC is reporting the death rate is similar to any flu and most deaths came from old people with multi comorbidities. Many people in NY nursing homes where Cuomo made a major blunder. But he gets great reviews.

Yet we are still acting like there is no cure and it is a death sentence?

Someone recently said it was a gift to the democrats and they and there media friends intend to take full advantage. Who was that someone? Jane Fonda? Someone said what all were thinking. Did Jane Fonda Say COVID-19 Was 'God's Gift to the Left'?
