Wow. Your statements illustrate an incredible ignorance of microbiology, medicine, and health care in general. Several claims are just plain false. Critical thinking skills are questionable as well. The more you go on with this theory, the bigger hole you dig, & more credibility is lost. Enjoying reading them though.My response is that both are viruses. One doesn't kill the other. They don't vie for the top dog position. Both being viruses, and the flu being greatly diminished while the Covid is active tells me that the covid is likely a mutation or progression of the flu. These apparent new strains of the covid that seem to pop up out of nowhere is another indication to me that the covid is simply progressing/mutating like any other flu virus. The increased use of masks and hand washing doesn't fly in my book as to why the usual flu is diminished. Progression/mutation makes much more sense to me.
The number of deaths being reported as being the result of the covid can't be anything more than being reported as the main cause of death of people with comorbiditys. As is usual with the flu, most people who get it don't die of it. It is only the straw that breaks the camels back for people with underlying conditions, just as someone with high blood pressure can have a stroke under a stressful situation; or be inflicted with severe arterial sclerosis and suffer angina when smoking (I raise my hand!) and have a heart attack when a small blood clot lodges in a restricted cardiac artery (I raise my hand!). Diabetes, asthma, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and other underlying conditions are generally the main cause of death but not being listed as such. Those conditions will eventually be the cause of death without the flu. Having the flu/covid is not an underlying condition, waiting around to kill you for when you develop diabetes, asthma, obesity, heart disease, cancer, or other condition.
If masks and hand washing were the reason the flu virus is in such lower numbers, it would have the same effect on the covid virus. Soap kills both. The covid virus and the flu virus are the same relative size, aren't they? Masks would work just as well for both.
The mendacity around this supposed pandemic/epidemic abounds.
