As our previous article How We Conquered Influenza After a Century of Failure discussed, nations are suddenly for the first time in history winning the war against Influenza. Today we’re covering Australia which has had the most remarkable success of anywhere on the planet.
Like all nations, Australia has waged war on the flu every year with some years having several hundred thousand cases.
2019 was an especially large flu season for Australia, with more than 217,000 cases occurring between April 2019 and September 2019. For the same period in 2020, Australia has had just 1133 cases, a stunning reduction of 99.6%
Compared to 2018 an unusually tame flu season, they’re still down more than 96%. With more than 10,000 cases a week during 2019, we are certain that Australian’s must have been terrified and begging the Government to save them. We are trying to locate news footage of the lock downs, mask mandates and social distancing guidelines that they employed during the 2019 pandemic but so far have been unsuccessful in locating that footage.
Some people have noted that this reduction in influenza is proof positive that our counter-measures such as lock downs and mask mandates are working. Australia has never had by any definition a “pandemic” of COVID-19, with a total of only 27,000 cases since the “pandemic” began. In other Nations like the United States which our previous article illustrated, while influenza has completely collapsed and essentially disappeared – COVID cases have exploded.
Which begs the question: How can lock downs, mask mandates, and social distancing all but eliminate one airborne infectious virus – and yet do virtually nothing to stop a different airborne infectious virus?
