What nobody seems to be talking about:

Due to the increased hygiene awareness and rules, fewer people than typical have been infected with other viral or bacterial infections since March.

"Our influenza season ended pretty abruptly in March. In the southern hemisphere the influenza season has gone almost unnoticed. Most other cold viruses have also become rare." (C. Drosten)

There is a lot to learn and research here.


Most of the other viruses have probably been classified as Covid! Similar symptoms mainly.
In the US deaths from heart attack dropped about 95%!
Covid generally has flu like behaviour that it could be "this season's flu variety".
Records & stats are shown to be all over the place.
Same cleanliness behaviour with HIV & no decrease in cold/flu then, or with the other sars viruses!
