    Yup. State and local politician reactions to COVID-19 are just the last ditch efforts to get rid of Trump after all the previous media-crats attempts fell flat. Trump had engineered the best economy, with the lowest unemployment in the last 50 years. And the dimwits had to destroy it.

    CDC Estimates of 2009 H1N1 Influenza Cases, Hospitalizations and Deaths in the United States

    During the pandemic, CDC provided estimates of the numbers of 2009 H1N1 cases, hospitalizations and deaths on seven different occasions. Final estimates were published in 2011. These final estimates were that from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010 approximately 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (8868-18,306) occurred in the United States due to pH1N1.

    Interesting comparison, when in the 6 months since the virus was first known in the US we've had 145,556 deaths attributed to the virus or twelve times the annual deaths associated to H1N1 in half the time. A vaccine was also released within 6 months of the H1N1 outbreak in the US. The reason schools and businesses weren't closed is because the fatality rate didn't justify it and the majority of transmission was through contact, whereas the virus is predominantly air-born transmission.
