It is not so hard to piece together the comparison …
- The 2002–2004 outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV or SARS-CoV-1), infected over 8,000 people from 29 different countries and territories, and resulted in at least 774 deaths worldwide.
- The 2009–2010 pandemic of swine influenza, caused by H1N1 influenza virus and declared by the World Health Organization (WHO) from June 2009 to August 2010, is the most recent flu pandemic involving the virus ... The number of lab-confirmed deaths reported to the WHO is 18,449, though the 2009 H1N1 flu pandemic is estimated to have actually caused about 284,000 (range from 150,000 to 575,000) deaths [worldwide]. A follow-up study done in September 2010 showed that the risk of serious illness resulting from the 2009 H1N1 flu was no higher than that of the yearly seasonal flu.
- The COVID-19 pandemic...is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). ... Official deaths from COVID-19 generally refer to people who died after testing positive according to protocols. These counts may ignore deaths of people who die without having been tested. Conversely, deaths of people who had underlying conditions may lead to over-counting. As of 8 October 2021, more than 4.83M [upward guess 5.9M] deaths have been attributed to COVID-19. The U.S. death count to date is 710,178, so prorated over the 2-year pandemic span ~355,089/deaths per yr.
- For comparison, "CDC estimates that seasonal flu has resulted in 9 million – 41 million illnesses, 140,000 – 710,000 hospitalizations and 12,000 – 52,000 deaths annually between 2010 and 2020."SO -- comparably 2002 SARS is insignificant; 2009 H1N1 is commensurate with seasonal flu. U.S. WuFlu appears 6X more lethal than high-end seasonal flu lethality. (Wait! Not so in Canada!). However if you have followed the CDC WuFlu bulletins, and I'm sure you have, analyses and modelings have been a royal botch and the numbers garbage. Short story, if your comparative article were ever found or written how persuadable could it be given the crap data must originate with the clueless CDC?Let me make a case for why the Biden regime can no longer persuade.We have been repeatedly knowingly egregiously lied to by this regime, by its CDC, by WHO, by big pharma. We have had big media and big tech suppress, distort, and deny relevant and vital information. We have had know-nothings, who clearly do not understand the manufacture and nature of these vaccines, pushed into positions of furtherance and censure and punition. The vax-hesitant or no-vaxxers are canceled in the public square, are maligned, threatened, harassed, assaulted, wished for dead or to suffer the cruelest deprivations and losses. Eminent doctors, epidemiologists, virologists, anyone with the scientific chops whose informed opinion urges caution or questions the safety or efficacy of the regime vaccines -- all are excluded from the public square, many being canceled, investigated, suspended, or fired.Faced with vax mandates, no-vax healthcare workers are resigning or being fired during what the vax pimps want you to believe is a national public health emergency. Wait! These aren't ignorant MAGA red cap clingers? Why are medical professionals vax-hesitant or no-vax? Well, shut up, the vax pimps explain.Biden: "When you see headlines and reports of mass firings, and hundreds of people losing their jobs, look at the bigger story...United went from 59% of their employees [vaccinated] to 99%..."Yes, well, fire the 41% of your workforce who won't take the jab and -- Voilà! -- the remaining workforce is almost wholly jabbed (99% -- who are the 1% hold-outs?)! It's more Biden magic, like $3.5T in spending that costs zero dollars. Bigger story here than the consequences, folks. [Hard sigh.] He really is this stupid.Biden: "We're making sure [i.e., mandating] healthcare workers are vaccinated because if you seek care at a healthcare facility, you should have the certainty that the people providing that care are protected from COVID and cannot spread it to you."But of course there is no such certainty. You can be fully vaxxed and become reinfected and be reinfected and asymptomatic. You can be fully vaxxed and contract a variant and be asymptomatic. None of the WuFlu vaccines of a certainty prevent you from contracting or spreading the virus or a variant. Why doesn't Biden know such relevant uncontroverted baseline information?* What the vaccines can do is "significantly reduce the risk of severe illness and death."* Any answer to any question regarding Biden's comprehension or competence or any necessary aptitude, begins: First off, Joe Biden is an idiot...Just remember, once you are fully vaxxed, there is an endless Biden booster regimen in the works.
Alright. [Long deep breath.] Given all the above -- most particularly the corrupt incompetent mendacious Biden regime all in a huff and losing patience with bratty no-vax me -- why in God's Holy Name would I -- would anyone -- trust or comply with their mandated vax? Personally I am beyond any conciliation with the Biden regime. They are liars, and sloppy lazy liars at that. They don't comprehend baseline information. They are unaccountable for anything, not Afghanistan, not inflation, not the border, nothing. Lastly, Joe Biden is an idiot.
