Why did we treat Covid19 different than the flu? Both are communicable diseases. More people seem to die every year from the flu. Covid19 deaths haven't even reached the levels of yearly deaths of the regular flu. I believe the simple answer is, Covid19 is, and was a real health threat, but a chance to politicize and weaponize a situation for a political agenda. I think the facts bear this out. Personally, I think the there was mass destruction of our economy to further a political agenda, and people's lives were disrupted for no reason that makes any sense to anyone with any common sense.
