The Spanish flu burned itself out in the spring of 2019 when humans developed herd immunity. That is to say that all of the vulnerable humans had died off and what remained were people who could withstand the flu. Once that happened the flu had nowhere to go and it disappeared. 99% of these fatalities were under the age of 65 with half being between 20 to 40 years old.
The majority of Coronavirus fatalities on the other hand are people aged 60 and over. This group in general is sucking more resources out of society than contributing to it. So culling this part of the herd is in the long run less financially painful then those who were culled by the Spanish Flu.
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
