Perspective: There were 83,780 Flu-Pneumonia Deaths in US this Season — So far Only 4,059 Coronavirus Deaths in US this Year

by Jim Hoft, GATEWAY PUNDIT   April 1, 2020

The international community is currently experiencing the worst global panic in modern history.

Entire economies, including the US economy, are in complete free-fall over the coronavirus pandemic and panic.

It is always good to pause and look at the actual data and not the ever-changing “models” the “experts” continue to throw at us.

We posted on the current coronavirus numbers in a previous post today.

Now this from our friend Steve at Grassfire:

The CDC’s “Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality Surveillance” website reports that there have been more than 80,000 P&I (pneumonia and influenza) deaths during the current 2019-2020 flu season.

This is far more than is currently being discussed by government leaders or the media. We heard this on a John Hoover video, had trouble believing it, so we went to the CDC website and downloaded the data (you can do the same, but we’ve done it here).

In 2020 alone, there have been nearly 43,000 P&I deaths. And we didn’t shut down society, shelter in place, curl up in the fetal position under our kitchen tables, only wandering out to go to Walmart, or Home Depot, or for drive through fast food.

And it appears that there was an accelerated outbreak of the flu starting in January, about the time it is likely COVID came into the country.

As Steve reported there was a curious bump in deaths at the beginning of the year.
What would explain this?

The president’s coronavirus task force owes it to the American public to be honest with them.

Millions and millions of Americans are going to lose their jobs, their homes and their savings.

These so-called “experts” owe the American public an explanation and not just ever-changing models to terrify the masses.

    Another excellent report confirm these crucial facts. This one is on

  4. @ Shmuel Mohalever:
    BTW, Adam, President Trump said the same thing on or about 03-10-20.
    This is a quote from your comment on 03-10-20:
    “President Trump thinks that the fears about the coronavirus are overstated. But the Centers for Disease Control and prevention don’t agree.

    “Donald Trump addressed the spread of the coronavirus disease in the United States tonight, saying that regular seasonal flu is more deadly, but does not disrupt civilian life. “It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down,” the President tweeted.

    Trump added that coronavirus is less deadly: “At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!”, he wrote.”

  5. @ Shmuel Mohalever:
    A very interesting comment under that article (I quote):
    “Wondering if some of those P&I deaths were Covid 19 before they had the testing for it? Guess we will never know. One thing is for sure though. This is hysteria weaponized to control the Sheeple. Now every time the scientists say jump we close down our society and depend on government to survive. Expand government by 25 to 30% and sink our children and grandchildren’s futures in more unimaginable debt.”

  6. From The Washington Post: “In Belarus, authoritarian leader President Alexander Lukashenko has famously scoffed at the coronavirus as a “frenzy and psychosis.” His views also come with advice for citizens who don’t share his coronavirus scorn: Hit the sauna, down some vodka and get back to work.”

    Coronavirus Now Third Leading Cause Of Death In US

    “COVID-19 has become the third leading cause of death in the United States. A doctor said more people have been dying every day from the disease than Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, chronic lung disease and accidents.

    “The U.S. has 5,110 deaths linked to the coronavirus disease as of Thursday, April 2. Looking at the daily data from, Dr. Maria Danilychev, of San Diego, estimated that COVID-19 has been killing 748 people per day in the U.S., The Sacramento Bee reported Wednesday.”

  8. @ Michael S:
    “COVID-19 has been killing 748 people per day in the U.S” Dr. Maria Danilychev
    748 x 7 days = 5,236 deaths
    “The US has 5,110 [coronavirus] deaths”.
    748 x 30 days = 22,440 deaths
    I suggest the good Dr. should brush up her 3Rs.
