Seasonal flu accounts for more that 1000 deaths annually IIRC. Emergencies are not announced for those, are they?
What’s so different about these deaths in real life as opposed to political life?
I think it's more like 36,000 flu deaths annually, if I remember rightly.
Number of deaths for leading causes of death
Heart disease: 631,636
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 137,119
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 121,599
Alzheimer’s disease: 72,432
Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,326
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 45,344
WHY no national emergency to make folks stop eating bacon? That is the REAL “swine” problem in this country. Look at the number of deaths from heart disease!
I saw the number is about 35,000 a year in the US.
