"A deadly flu virus has been killing around 100 people per week in the US since mid-December, the Center for Disease Control has warned. "

We are in the midst of the worst flu season in recent memory.    It is a borderline pandemic strain.    Infection rates seem to be MUCH higher than normal.    Yes it is a nasty nasty virus and it is killing 100 people per week.     Several thousand people will die this year from flu.   Pandemic swine flu was also a much worse flu than normal and we also only  had several thousand die.  Yes I know flu deaths are often not reported properly so even if we say only a 1/10 of flu deaths are accurately reported, you still only get to around 10-20k.

CDC says 30-50K people die every year with seasonal flu.    To get to that number you need 5-10 thousand people passing every week at the peak.

So even with worst flu seasons in memory we only get a tiny fraction of what the CDC says should die in an average year.

Do they lie about seasonal flu?   Or are they lying now?   Why?
