Last flu season ran into 2020, when they started classifying flu as Covid 19.
What about other years?
Also, it might be an idea to combine the numbers with viral pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses, that have been wrongly classified as Covid 19, along with many other causes of death that occur within 28 days of a positive test (which is considered not fit for purpose due to its inaccuracy and high rate of false positives).
All the data you need is here.
One example, also addressing other respiratory viruses as well:
And so on.
Also the test is for SARS-COV-2, not flu virus.
Case definition for covid is clear and published, thats all settled now.
False positives from the test are EXTREMELY small. The demonstration of this is Australia and NZ, where thousands of tests are being conducted. But due to the very low transmission of covid, there are also no positive cases at all, when you might expect false positives would dominate. I mean, where are all these false positives in Australia and NZ?
