    In a normal flu season there would be people in hospital, and deaths. Time to shut down this nonsense. Just fearmongering to justify the State of Emergency, which has passed, and continued control of Bermuda. The stats are about as accurate as the ridiculous 2.5% inflation figure for the 12 months January to January. The only way matters might get back to normal is When the PLP backbench grow some testicular fortitude. Unlikely as they’d rather than be in the bathroom or suddenly sick when a controversial vote is taken. Never vote against the Premier’s wishes despite not supporting him. Total waste of money.

      “In a normal flu season there would be people in hospital, and deaths.”

      We do not have anywhere near 60 deaths per year from the flu in a “normal flu season”.

      Influenza viruses observed (to-date) kill approximately 1 out 100,000 people. The coronavirus (to-date) kills approximately 1-2 out of 100 people! That’s the difference between maybe one death over two consecutive years of different strains of the flu going through our entire population, and +70 people dying per parish (which will end up being a loved one to either yourself or someone you care about) over the course of a single strain! By all means say what you want to say brother, but don’t insult those who have died and their surviving family members by insinuating their death and suffering was anything but exceptional!
