Do you know why the 'flu' had to disappear?

People speculated the cases were transferred to COVID-19, which, sure, could be one possibility.

But one provable justification is *because of lockdowns* (not for the reasons you think, see below).

Lets suppose, for a moment, the government screams that SARS-CoV-2 was more dangerous, more super-spreadable, and worse than flu.

And let us also suppose, for a moment, that the government, in order to 'seize control', must mandate lockdowns as a form of tyranny and control.

Their justification for the lockdowns has to be 'because it reduces disease spread'. Let us presume it is a lie (it is, but we're making the presumption explicit).

Now, there's no way, at the time, for people to prove SARS-CoV-2 was or was not being affected by lockdown; novel virus with no prior history under non-lockdown conditions means there's no before/after data to work with.

But there is a way to prove whether or not lockdowns work by comparing baserate to flu.

If it turns out that flu does not go down during a lockdown (or masking, or plexiglass screens, or arbitrary spacing, or cashless-ness, etc), then it is provable whatever the government says is a lie.

The government, having no prior data of flu under lockdown to work with, cannot just falsify a lower flu case rate because it's quite probable someone could easily expose the ratio as being wrong (especially when compared to the "success" of SARS-CoV-2). Once the flu figures are shown as bunk, then the lockdown lies building towards vaccine passports unravels.

So, how do all the world governments, all marching in lockstep, solve this dilemma?

They simply... just stop recording flu data. No reports, no updates. Can't tell or infer a baseline if they claim they're not even bothering to record it. Can't prove or disprove the lockdowns do or do not work, can't show effectiveness or non-effectiveness of masks, of plexiglass screens, of non-stop alcohol soap, etc.

After all, if flu cases were the same, then it would mean 'super-duper' SARS-CoV-2 would be unaffected by any and all of the measures. Flu threatened to expose the theatre simply because it was a reliable baseline.

Essentially, they cheated; hide the flu data in order to obscure exactly how ineffective lockdowns (and their power-grabs) are, in order to hide the fraudulent justification and sinister intents of their action.

I guarantee if you do the calculations based on the data you've inferred, you will find the lockdowns had next to no impact. And if the flu numbers went up...

A woman who described herself as the head of ICU nursing stood next to me in the cafeteria line of a local hospital. It was May or June of 2021. Naturally, I immediately delve into the controversial topic of COVID. When asked, she responds -- with drama in her voice -- that indeed the ICU was filled and, really, overwhelmed with COVID cases the previous year. Very quickly I demanded to know how many cases of influenza there were in comparison. Caught off guard, and visibly stunned, she grew a large grin and stated: "None."

I cannot wait to read your intriguing article in more depth when I return to the office today.

I have been encouraging people to resurrect what my dictionary indicates as an obsolete definition the term, and the various syntactical forms of the word, 'dissembly'. Thus, not only does it mean "general dishonesty," as we seem to now use it in the States --- but its original denotation of "disassembling and hiding the parts of a story, or the puzzle pieces so that the pattern cannot be detected," very usefully identifies a particular, distinguishable type of disingenuousness.

‘Variants’ was also part of keeping it going, once you combine it with ILI misattribution. It is well understood that a respiratory disease epidemic is over in a community in 6-8 weeks: it was over in the UK in June 2020. If you are: Boris and Handjob and have spent billions on 330 million vaccines we do not need; Whitty, Ferguson and Farah and have spent years agitating for NPIs; Vallance, JVT and Pharma desperate for cash and mRNA being approved; and the public propagandised into hysteria; you all need it to go on or you all look very stupid indeed.

And yet they were hyping the "twindemic" in the fall of 2020. When that didn't materialize, they rebranded it "Flurona" and tried again in the fall of 2021. Then in 2022, they finally got their "tripledemic" because people's immune systems had been wrecked.

I believe the CDC's FluView in US was suspended at some point during 2020 due to covid-19. It was on the CDC site previously but since it has been restarted the message about the suspension is no longer listed.

However, on this link from the South Carolina? Department of Health regarding Flu Watch between October 25-31st 2020, the first box has the following words:

Due to the ongoing COVID-19

pandemic, assessment of geographic

spread will be suspended for the

2020-21 influenza season. Please visit

the CDC website for more information:

World Influenza Tracking by WHO:


No flu worldwide for almost 18 months starting March 2020. The only explanation is the flu was rebranded into covid-19..

Same symptoms and the same or less than usual mortality in some countries, like Canada

Excellent work on this subject so far, thanks very much.


Took me awhile to find this page, but I finally managed it... ONS data on deaths published in Jan 2021.

"Of the 8,433 deaths involving COVID-19 in Week 4 in England and Wales, 7,610 had this recorded as the underlying cause of death (90.2%).

Of the 5,719 deaths that involved Influenza and Pneumonia, 298 had this recorded as the underlying cause of death (5.2%)."

So 90%+ of covid deaths were registered as covid deaths but ONLY 5%+ of flu deaths were registered as such. When I found this back in Jan 2021 when the data was released, I was surprised & confused...

Now it seems pretty clear that this anomaly is related to the concerns that flu deaths were being pinned on covid, which also helps explains flu's surprise disappearance at that time.

I think we need a death survey (a bit like Clare Craig originally proposed) and estimate all the causes of death in 4 categories probably by age group and by year. Is this something you guys can do? I expect it will show how little C-19 itself was a problem and how badly the government overreacted and how damaging those actions were.



"Suicides" - due to depression, frustration, isolation etc.

"Hospital evacuation deaths" - caused by patients moved into care homes without testing

"Preventable C-19 deaths" - due to restricted treatment protocols (e.g. banning Ivermectin)

"False C-19 deaths" with false positive PCR test i.e. they didn't have C-19

"C-19 deaths" where C-19 was not the real cause i.e. 'with' not 'from' C-19

"Midazolam deaths" - due to DNR and other life ending treatments

"Remdesivir deaths" - from the precription of Remdesivir

"Jab induced C-19 deaths" - due to post vax suppressed immune system

"Vax deaths" - jab induced myocarditis, blood clots, nervous damage etc.

"Nosocomial infections" - deaths from disease caught in hospital

"Lockdown deaths" - due to loneliness , poverty etc.

"Vaccine hesitancy deaths" - lack of normal vaccination due to mistrust

"Neo-natal vax deaths" - miscarriages, still births and baby deaths

"Iatrogenic deaths" - intubation etc.

"<21 days vax deaths" - miscategorised as unvaxed <14/21 days after jab

"NHS neglect deaths" - from over concentration on C-19


"Flu deaths" - C-19 attributed deaths actually from flu


"Real C-19 deaths"

"Falsely unattributed C-19 deaths" - false negative PCR diagnoses

The government and their bureaucracies are totally incompetent or compulsive liars, I think it is likely both. The list of deceptions, misinformation, and disinformation from this cabal is infinite. Now they want to be the complete artibitrators of truth with their censorship intitatives around "mis & dis information". What a joke, it would be funny if these idiots had no impact to our our lives.

Here in the US they only had a test to differentiate between Covid and the Flu in Jan 2022. If you pull up the numbers of flu cases here in 2021 it was basically non existent.

PCR tests were finding cases where in other years whatever these people had would have gone unnoticed. It's a shame.

I must say I've been very surprised by the absence of push back to this post. I'd prefer some scepticism and red team counter points. Same on twitter. But silence.

Any explanation?

Crikey, the amount of time and money squandered on supposedly tracking ‘flu’ and ‘Covid’, and pressing vaccinations on people over and over again.

What is the point of it?!?!

It’s worse than useless!

Imagine if the time and money was spent on encouraging people to lead healthy lives, instead of ramming needles into them every few months, and messing with their natural immune response!

This respiratory disease racket has been going on for years, the creation of the pandemic industry with the intent of creating lucrative vaccine markets, and throwing digital ID into the mix courtesy of ‘vaccine passports’

When are the perpetrators of this diabolical scam to fleece and control the public going to be brought to account?

Anthony Fauci for instance?

Fauci and his co-authors as good as admitted that vaccines against respiratory ailments are rubbish, in their article published in January this year.

See below my email to them:

The biggest crime in history...the influenza and SARS-CoV-2 vaccine scam, sent 27 April 2023.

David Morens, Jeffery Taubenberger and Anthony Fauci, you admit influenza and SARS-CoV-2 vaccine products are rubbish in your article Rethinking next-generation vaccines for coronaviruses, influenzaviruses, and other respiratory viruses. Cell Host & Microbe 31, 11 January 2023.

You say: "As of 2022, after more than 60 years of experience with influenza vaccines, very little improvement in vaccine prevention of infection has been noted. As pointed out decades ago, and still true today, the rates of effectiveness of our best approved influenza vaccines would be inadequate for licensure for most other vaccine-preventable diseases."

Really?!?!?! So what is this, just out and out fraud?

And now we've been inflicted with the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine racket, products you admit "elicit incomplete and short-lived protection against evolving virus variants that escape population immunity"...but you also say "the rapid development and deployment of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines has saved innumerable lives and helped to achieve early partial pandemic control".

Based upon what evidence do you make that fanciful claim for efficacy?!

How have you gotten away with this utter bullshit for so long?

Because the scientific and medical establishment is captured by the lucrative Church of Vaccination, and incapable of calling out the gross exploitation of mass populations of people with defective and unnecessary products!

How many billions of people, including children, have been misled into having these unnecessary and worse than useless medical interventions?

How many billions of dollars have been squandered on the influenza and SARS-CoV-2 vaccines scam?

And these unnecessary and worse than useless products have been mandated in many instances, mandated medical interventions trashing the legal and ethical obligation for voluntary informed consent. And the medical 'profession' went along with this travesty.

Respiratory infections and diseases were reclassified world wide late 2019/early 2020.😐🤨😑

As JustAPoster said, it was PIC in the USA (I'm assuming means USA based on CDC link), while in Australia it is a slightly different acronym but includes the same infections, which prior to 2020 did not include SARS Cov2. I'm sure if you check each countries classification system for respiratory diseases, you'll find a similar redefinition, at around the same time.

Ivor Cummins in Ireland covered this very early in 2020, when he was first crunching data re covid initial wave.

I believe, based on statements made by the WHO at the time, that it was a global directive issued by them to every government's public health regulatory bodies.

Au Canada, many people were marveling at how little flu there was at that time. It seems, they just don't think things through for one reason or another, instead it's easier to just believe what the authorities tell you, why would some old lady down the road know better?!

Thanks. Excellent expose of their shenanigans & obfuscations.

If I remember right, Wolfgang Wodarg mentioned in a talk I saw on Youtube, that the German sentinel system was stopped for some period of time as described by that "subscriber" posting "this self-explanatory comment on an earlier post". Wodarg lead for years his own sentinel shop, so knows the system an how it works. You might want to contact him for more in-depth information on how it worked in Germany during that time.
