Last Year's Flu Season Was the Deadliest In Four Decades, But Prompted Zero Shutdowns

As states across the nation lengthen COVID-19 shutdown restrictions and the White House continues to urge social distancing measures at the advice of health officials, the CDC revealed this week that more than 80,000 Americans died last year – but not from the coronavirus.

From the seasonal flu.

In fact, according to the reported numbers, last year’s flu season was the deadliest since 1976, with far more fatalities than the 56,000 who died in 2011-12. In addition, more than 900,000 people were hospitalized with the flu last year alone.
