Comparing the age demographics of flu vs. Covid-19 deaths, one thing is clear:

Flu deaths can reasonably be described as vastly consisting of people ove 65.

Covid-19 deaths, on the other hand, are over 50% below 75. This disease kills a lot of people of all ages, and all medical conditions. This is not the flu.

2. Exactly. I get so frustrated talking to people about this.

They think they're invincible because they're under 65 (and they think those over 65 are expendable for the economy).
