Wearing a mask isn't as restrictive to your freedom as being on your death bed, poverty, lay-offs, ageism and sexism in the workplace. I hear people so aggressively against wearing a mask, and seriously? That's the biggest of your problems? Your minimum wage is way below what's needed to cover utility bills and food shops - okay, but don't you dare shut us up with a mask.

Absolute rot, Trevor. Do some research, boetman. The 1957-8 Asian Flu killed 1.1 million people worldwide. Spanish Flu death toll was an order of magnitude more than Covid. I get your show has a bias, baba, but you and your writers are neither historians nor journalists. Sies!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not even similar. 1918 population 1.6 billion. 50 MILLION deaths. 2020 population 7.8 billion (Yes we have surpassed Dr. Hawkings prediction that at 7.6 billion, the Earth cannot sustain human kind.) As of today there are 361,000 deaths. Not even close, and a little over one tenth of a percent of the population. Not even a full percent. On the bright side. Per the CDC COVID (Only fools say corona. There are 7 forms of corona virus and it is nothing new. It is a generic term for viruses that have been around for years. Corona is being used to scare people.) Question the media. Question the Government. The last time in history I have seen so many people blindly trusting both. There was a world war.

Trevor, you know as well as I do that the attention given to boomers screaming that 5G causes coronavirus is just a diversion to keep people from thinking about the mass surveillance implications. Surveillance cameras need to stream a LOT of data to servers for facial recognition and 5G's increased bandwidth enables that.

I wonder who advocated against masks in March? Oh, it was your beloved Fauci.... People believe what you tell them first. It's very hard (impossible) to change people's minds later. Fauci should have known that. If he didn't he needs a professional science communicator to speak to the public for him. A large number of deaths are the direct consequence of Fauci saying "you don't need a mask" in March. Possibly the majority of deaths. He should be prosecuted. He was fully aware that masks work at that time and he admitted that he only said to not wear a mask because there was a shortage. But there a number of other ways to express that (e.g. recommending to make your own masks while the shortage lasts). Instead he chose to lie and people died.

The sad thing here is that he's genuinely trying to find similarities between these two contagions. Spanish Flu killed over 50,000,000 people during the bloodiest time in history up to that point when the population of the world was under 2 billion. Whereas the percentage of death worldwide for COVID is .0133%. Spanish Flu was 2.5%. The federal government sucked balls during this pathogen just like every country does with biological threats, but all countries did better than they did during the Spanish Flu and Swine Flu, especially America where Swine Flu had over 80 million cases. Trying to blame Donald Trump for the entirety of the federal government's failure is just as much of a stretch. Comparing these two pathogens is like comparing Influenza to heart disease.

Agree with the mask, hand washing and social distancing. But why is there so little emphasis on strengthening the immune system? I tested positive for SARS Cov 2 a week ago.

My great grandmother lived threw the Spanish Flu (she was born in 1908) in northern California. her family lived in the middle of nowhere. They lived about 20 miles from the nearest town. Her whole family survived only because they basically quarantined themselves to their ranch. She told me once that they'd only go to town once ever 2-3 months for supplies and they had a massive garden to feed themselves. Personally the reason I think the only reason covid-19 wasn't as bad as the Spanish Flu is we have hospital that are equipped with breathing respiratory and in 1918 they didn't have that kinda technology.

You left out the fact that the Spanish flu started in the US and spread to other parts of the world with the US' active entry into WW1. It's only called "Spanish" flu because the censorship in Spain wasn't as strict as in other countries and the newspapers there were first to write about it. And 100 years may seem looong ago for many, but in my family, we still remember the names of the relatives who died from the Spanish flu.

I'll one-up you: In 1679, the plague reached Vienna. For half a year, the sanitary committee, instead of counteracting the disease, tried to conceal it until people started dying in masses. People's ideas of the sources of the plague were absolutely ridiculous, but the measures taken were quite modern: social distancing, quarantine, protection of airways, closing of markets, etc. However, reading records from back then gave me chills, because PEOPLE BACK THEN REACTED EXACTLY THE SAME AS PEOPLE TODAY!! There are several accounts of people standing together (over plague corpses lying in the streets), people breaking their quarantine, etc. The plague eventually ended with 1/3 of the population dying from the plague and its consequences. Let's not repeat the mistakes from 342 years ago!!

The presidents job is not to start a panick. Just imagine if he walked onto stage and said we are all going to die, this is going to wipe up out. If you want to see for you self how effective masks are ride a 4 wheeler, shovel a grain bin, sand some drywall. The president was right you only have a short time on earth and if you choose to run and hide in a corner panicked by all means do it. If you want to protect yourself from getting sick, exercise, see your doctor, eat a healthy diet, do not use drugs. Death is a part of life get used to it because you are going to die.

There's still substantial amounts of people who just ignore what their government is urging them to do, because reasons, so they need to be reminded of what went wrong in the past.
