12 months ago, people had flus, coughs, and some had bronchial pneumonia. In what way is the situation any different from how it was then? As far as I can see, the only difference is a controlled media raving 24/7 about a pandemic.

The coronavirus is much more contagious and can be contracted from standing within about 1.5-1.8m of someone for too long. The pathogen also stays on surfaces for days without dying so if a person in a household has it, it is likely the whole household will. There's also a larger rate of infection and more people have died to it than people died to the flu last year. Also we have very little previous knowledge on how to treat it so as a population we are pretty defenseless to it.

'As far as I can see'

Your not really looking are you?

Tell me, how many under-50s flu patients require ventilation and hospitalization to survive the flu?

If you can follow the logic from there, you will find your answer.

(hint. This pandemic kills young people, like the flu kills old people..)

You need to trust that many many nations around the world, wouldn't simply be taking a grenade to their own economies, if it weren't absolutely essential.

You cant have been reading the difference between the flu and the flu+ covid 19.
You might want to do some very basic research and then we can fill in the gaps.
The fact you cnat see the difference would be very worrying to your mum and teachers.
