FACT: N1H1 > COVID-19

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, there were 60.8 million H1N1 cases, with 274,304 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths in the U.S. alone. It’s estimated that worldwide, 151,700 to 575,400 people died from (H1N1)pdm09 during the first year. Unusually, about 80% of the deaths were in people younger than 65 years of age. COVID-19 is no where near these numbers while adversely effecting an inverse demographic.

I know everyone needs to justify the excess toilet paper, stocked basements and Amazon prepper kits but straight fact is Coronavirus is not as nasty as the outbreak that came before it. Do you recall all the closures and panic in 2010?
