Number of deaths globally from covid-19: 689476.
This makes tuberculosis a much bigger threat, with actually zero panic worldwide about it. Suicide is a slightly bigger threat than covid-19. Diabetes causes twice as many deaths. I’m not saying it’s not a serious threat, it killed as many people as malaria and the year isn’t over yet, but the level of panic is so obviously mismatched with the actual threat level, and the world leaders who normally can’t agree on the color of shit are so obviously all singing in sync, that conspiracy and social engineering assert themselves as obvious causes.
Oh, I forgot: number of people who die of influenza each year. 650000. So yes, this was a worse flu season than normal, by some 6%. Scary.
