Dear Ones,

The 2017-2018 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.11 percent, which is 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

The 2018-2019 Influenza-related mortality rate in United States = 0.06 percent, which about half as many deaths as in the prior year’s flu season.

Combined deaths from flu, pneumonia and COVID-19 from the when COVID-19 arrived at the beginning of February to the end of October 2020 were 0.11 percent, which is only slightly more than 1/10 of 1 percent of the United States population.

These latter statistics are 3 months short of a year of data. The mortality rate since COVID-19 arrived is running ‘neck in neck’ with the data for the 2017-2018 pre-COVID flu season here in the United States, but about twice that for 2018-2019.

At the end of February 2020 we will have a comparison for a full year of COVID-19 plus influenza-related mortalities.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
