Ben Swann Drops Bombshell: Seasonal FLU TWICE as Deadly as Coronavirus?

Investigative reporter Ben Swann’s recent 12 minute segment on data manipulation of Coronavirus mortality rates drops several major bombshells using data directly from the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control. Swann began his segment by addressing the often reported line that “the current covid-19 mortality rate is far worse than the seasonal flu” (with Covid-19 showcasing an apparent 3.4% death rate vs the 0.1% seasonal flu average). Does the data justify this claim or not?

Another question raised in this video is: who stands to gain by a total shutdown of the western economy?

Listen to Swann’s line of argument and judge for yourself…

Interesting and pretty damning for US reporters who would appear to need to take off their shoes to calculate a tip and who may have failed the fruit identification course.

Thank heavens the experts do not base their advice on the nightly news.

It helps to read more than the headline… The article itself gives clues: “Fortunately, the deadly Hantavirus is much more contagious as a social media panic than as a biologic infectious agent.” And: “However, HPS can’t be passed on from person to person.” Hantavirus can infect people, but only from direct contact with rodents, their excrement, or their nests. Been around for a while, also in North America and Europe. Causes a few deaths every year. Unless there is a rodent plague, I am sure China is aware of how that virus spreads and is not worried much about an… Read more »

So the people in France where the hospitals are being swamped are just dying of hysteria?

Anyone who is aware of what is happening in Italy, as well as much of the rest of Europe, and proceeds to write something like is, either has an agenda, or is too stupid to look at things within their appropriate context.

The data is manipulated b.s. everywhere, including in Italy. Time for you to begin to inform yourself of this kind of data being reported on many online honest news sites now. Probably only 700 deaths can be truly attributed to death by corona virus in Italy, not the 1000s reported by the corrupt dishonest USA TV / radio, all of which is manipulated lies in America now:

Time for you to visit Italy and see the chaos for yourself.

According to this November 2019 article from the International Journal Of Infectious Diseases, Italy has a nasty history of very high annual mortality rate from influenza. Check it out;

As usual, context is everything, and here, it is clearly missing. Swann fails to address a key point: COVID-19 has caused one of the greatest medicinal systems in Europe to collapse in matter of days. The yearly flu season does not do that. The flu doesn’t force doctors to decide who lives, and who does, nor does it cause permanent lung damage, which is observed in some COVID19 survivors. That is why COVID-19 is far more dangerous that the flu, and why the measures being taken by governments the world over are, very much, necessary.

I’d agree with him if everyone dealt with this as disciplined as the Taiwanese and Japanese. Alas…
