NO MORE FLU
Influenza experts never thought they would see the scenario currently unfolding in Australia.
In a month when flu cases are normally rising to a peak, no deaths due to influenza have been reported anywhere in the country for the year.
In fact, it gets even better than that!
According to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the last Australian death officially attributed to influenza was recorded in July 2020:
This means Australia has officially gone over one year without a single flu death on our shores:
Stunningly, the flu has virtually disappeared, no longer even causing hospitalisations as well!
Of the 435 cases notified to the Australian Influenza Surveillance Report so far since April 2021, no hospital admissions have been recorded:
This comes right around the same time that new coronavirus lockdown hysteria began to increase, mind you.
For context, there were 21,005 notifications of laboratory-confirmed influenza by this time in 2020, including 36 deaths.
In 2019, there had been 214,377 notifications and 486 deaths.
The absence of influenza in the community has been described as ‘amazing’ by ‘experts’.
Professor Ian Barr, Deputy Director of the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Influenza at the Doherty Institute, commented on this news.
He is frank when asked if he ever imagined the current situation: “No. It’s amazing. Never!”
What a time — during a deadly pandemic — to achieve this incredible feat of science.
Something that the greatest minds of the past could not achieve for decades.
A disease that once ravaged Australia, has suddenly vanished.
Well done, Australia!
BACK IN MY DAY..
Some of you younger kids may not remember this thing called ‘the seasonal flu’.
Man, those were the days!
The seasonal flu was once caused by the influenza virus. Flu viruses evolved freshly somewhere in East or Southeast Asia every year, spreading around the world over the next nine months before dying out. There are many different strains, and they can change every year.
Common symptoms once included fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, and a runny or stuffy nose.
In more serious cases, it can lead to bronchitis, croup, pneumonia, ear infections, heart and other organ damage, brain inflammation, brain damage and death.
But now, however, those terrible days are gone! The experts are baffled!
Thank the lucky stars above!
However, we must not let our guard down just yet.
This flu has been replaced with a.. well, with a less deadlier virus!
That has killed less people!
To stop this.. well, decline, we now destroy the lives of millions of citizens if so much as a handful of sniffles pop up in the greater community.
This new virus also developed in South Asia and spread across the world.
This new virus also will continue to develop new variants as time progresses.
Symptoms of this new virus also include fever, chills, cough, sore throat and a stuffy nose.
This new virus can also lead to heart damage, organ failure and more.
Hang on a minute..
Something isn’t adding up here..
I think we may have been duped..
