How Many People Does The Flu Really Kill? Censors Know


Trump said that the flu killed some years more than 100,000 in the USA. The tech monopolies and some “Democratic” politicians decried this statement as “misleading and potentially harmful” and censored the US president.

Welcome to the club, Mr. President! I have been censored thousands (yes, thousands) of times by the plutocratic media (and banned entirely from many sites, and magazines)… Including some I have long been subscribed to. Recently a social media I belonged to, realizing I was in contact with around 300,000 people, yanked that connection. Another outfit implements a fatwa of an Islamic Republic concerning another of my electronic publications. Active measures are taken to limit my electronic existence. For example the Bing search engine doesn’t recognize my existence.

Actually, the monopolies are scientifically wrong about the flu. The flu kills much more than its official numbers. Because the flu kills through secondary pneumonia, and other pulmonary diseases it fosters. The flu kills indirectly by destroying the immune system in the lungs.

For US adults, pneumonia is the most common cause of hospital admissions other than women giving birth. About 1 million adults in the US seek care in a hospital due to pneumonia every year, and 50,000 die from this disease.

Overall, the Center for Disease Control estimates that 12,000 and 61,000 deaths annually since 2010 can be blamed on the flu. The higher number reflects the 2017-2018 flu season. Most years, the US death toll from the flu is closer to 34,000 to 43,000. 

Now flu can also launch Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, COPD, when the lungs outright die in vast portions. This is increasingly the leading cause of death. Both my parents died from it.  

The discovery that influenza impacts immune defense is formally recent… Although it was long epidemiologically obvious: during the flu season, a lot of people die from acute respiratory infection, often after they caught the flu, although not necessarily while having it. How that mechanism works was elucidated recently. Basically, the flu virus acts like an HIV for the lungs. The flu virus depresses immune function in the lungs by more than 90%…

Here is a quote from NIH, 2017 (in full and in context in the appendix):

“Virally induced death of immune cells assist in the evasion of host defenses and hinders the clearance of the virus promoting the development of infection. Studies have shown a 90% reduction of alveolar macrophages in mice within a week of influenza infection, and evidence of necrosis in the remaining macrophages” (Robinson et al., 2015). 

This is in the notion of “associated bacterial infections”:

So Trump was right. But it does not matter: the owners of the world have said that Trump is wrong, so Trump is wrong. And the owners are right. Immense power and money are always right. If you say otherwise, you will get banned from appearing in social media, even in a minute way. Immense, deep, secret and obscure forces have actually found a way to shut me down, and I am presently using methods used in China to publish the present document. This is why I am writing a lot these days. Like the flower dying, and blooming a final time.

TRUMP CENSORSHIP AND MEDIA BIAS:

Here is the context, straight from Reuters, Reuters is owned by mostly one guy who got it from his father who got it from his own father, who got it from ancestors, etc. A family owned plutocratic hydra originally from Canada…including a Foundation, of course. Similar, a bit even older than the New York Times: we own what you think, because we created it. The sort of typical Trump hating GLOBAL PLUTOCRATIC ENTITY :

WASHINGTON, Oct 6 (Reuters) – A coronavirus patient himself, President Donald Trump on Tuesday said Americans were learning to live with the pandemic, posting comments online that drew a rebuke from Facebook and Twitter for likening the COVID-19 death toll to that of the annual flu.

A day after leaving a nearby hospital for the White House, where he will receive intensive treatments unavailable to most people, the Republican, 74, again understated the effects of the virus on social media.

Notice the US president is downgraded to “Republican” (although he spent much of his life as a Democrat), and a selfish one: intensive treatment unavailable to most people. In truth, a courageous experimenter; Trump was the 275th person to receive Regeneron’s antibody cocktail. Proposed experimental treatment for his aorta aneurysm, Albert Einstein declined… although he was dying from said aneurysm. The treatment is now standard… So Reuters claims Trump “understated”… in other words: lied. And Reuters to quote the tweet Twitter banned: 

“Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter and Facebook ( FB ).

Facebook removed the Trump post for breaking its rules on COVID-19 misinformation, according to CNN.

“This is a lie. The flu doesn’t kill 100,000 a year,” Senator Chris Murphy, a Democrat, tweeted.

TECHNICAL APPENDIX:

Here is a quote from https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5481322/

Abstract

Lower and upper respiratory infections are the fourth highest cause of global mortality (Lozano et al., 2012). Epidemic and pandemic outbreaks of respiratory infection are a major medical concern, often causing considerable disease and a high death toll, typically over a relatively short period of time. Influenza is a major cause of epidemic and pandemic infection. Bacterial co/secondary infection further increases morbidity and mortality of influenza infection, with Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Staphylococcus aureus reported as the most common causes. With increased antibiotic resistance and vaccine evasion it is important to monitor the epidemiology of pathogens in circulation to inform clinical treatment and development, particularly in the setting of an influenza epidemic/pandemic.

Keywords: influenza, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, pandemic

Virally induced death of immune cells assist in the evasion of host defenses and hinders the clearance of the virus promoting the development of infection. Studies have shown a 90% reduction of alveolar macrophages in mice within a week of influenza infection, and evidence of necrosis in the remaining macrophages (Robinson et al., 2015). Necrosis and pyroptosis are pro-inflammatory due to their role in the release of cytokines. These cell death pathways allow for the rapid release of intracellular contents, including any viral components, from the infected host cell promoting host inflammatory responses and the formation of a cytokine storm which causes host tissue damage (Cundell et al., 1995; Rock and Kono, 2008; Lamkanfi and Dixit, 2010; Cauley and Vella, 2015). Furthermore infection with some influenza subtypes, for instance H1N1 and H5N1, typically result in lymphopenia, a state of abnormally low levels of lymphocytes, which has been associated with higher viral load. de Jong et al. (2006) found influenza infection caused lower levels of cytotoxic T cell lymphocytes, which would therefore negatively affect acquired immunity (de Jong et al., 2006; Cunha et al., 2009).

Influenza infection has been shown to increase the adherence of S. aureus (as well as H. influenzae and S. pneumoniae) to host pharyngeal cells (Fainstein et al., 1980). In addition to this, mouse models have highlighted increased morbidity and mortality in mice that are pre-infected with influenza before they are exposed to S. aureus vs. those just exposed to S. aureus.

    These flu statistics do not strictly compare with current COVID pandemic as those deaths occurred without the use of restrictions on activity that US has employed (closures, masks, limited gatherings. etc.). Even with these measures, COVID deaths are about 210,000 and the year is not over. So it is an apples to oranges comparison. It would appear COVID deaths would be considerably more if these steps had not been taken to curb the spread.
