Donald Trump is again comparing COVID-19 to the flu, but COVID is much deadlier.
Trump’s actions again show him not taking the virus that has killed over 210,000 Americans seriously.
According to the CDC, the 2017-18 flu season was severe. 45 million Americans were infected, and 61,000 died.
COVID? 7.4 million infected, 210,000 dead.
And counting. https://t.co/WBfaaiwicA

A lot of people are saying we’re back where we started with this tweet but he actually seems to know less about the flu than he did seven months ago pic.twitter.com/2CU3NZb9NK

The CDC reports that most years, the US death toll from the flu is 34,000 to 43,000. The coronavirus death toll this year is over 210,000 https://t.co/mNm4EM1nWO
