Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Tragically, however, the number of deaths so far this year is 37,151 higher than the average for

2015to2019.

With extreme measures in place to prevent it's spread. If we took these measures away, the death toll would be much higher. If we took these measures with the flu, the death toll would probably barely register on the charts.
Pray, tell me why only 4 million infections of coronavirus after many months globally when common flu usually registers hundreds of millions of infections over the same period If much more contagious.

Here is my take on it.
Oh good. I had no idea how you felt about it. I wish you would share this opinion more often, and in more threads...

The simple Fact is that covid is much more contagious than the common flu and is killing more people, With extreme measures in place to prevent it's spread. If we took these measures away, the death toll would be much higher. If we took these measures with the flu, the death toll would probably barely register on the charts. The numbers are there. There's no denying them.
heres hoping hunter8 has his reading glasses by now.

If you believe those “extreme measures” work, my brainwashed friends, I have a bridge to sell you. Just look at UK, infections didn’t go down despite lockdown, same is true for other countries. Opposite example is many countries with no extreme measures that are doing well. Not to mention that when people are forbidden to get together outside, they will have get-togethers inside as social beings, not everyone is an introvert. In other words, it’s like trying to stop wind, good luck with that.

My question why only 4 million infections after many months while flu can do hundreds of millions in the same period went answered as was expected because that would shake your entire belief system on covid as it is streamed into your brains by msm.

See what happens when you try to open up to soon>>
I would think this will be repeated in France, the UK, Germany, the US.....
Three workers at a McDonald's restaurant in Melbourne have tested positive for coronavirus as the Cedar Meat cluster grows.

Three workers from a McDonald's restaurant at Fawkner, in Melbourne's north, have tested positive to COVID-19 as measures to curb the spread of the pandemic start to ease.

The outlet has reopened following a deep clean and is being staffed by workers from nearby restaurants.

But McDonald's has warned the number of ill employees could rise as more test results come back.

Oh my 3 more people tested positive in a city of more than 4 million, I sure hope that is repeated, because it's statistically irrelevant.

A big part of opening up means having enough testing resources to track down and isolate any clusters that spring up. As well as being on the downward part of the curve.

Places that don’t have either in place is begging for trouble.
