For when I registered Dad's death by telephone (as you have to these days), the registrar told me there had been very many other cases like ours where 'the deceased' had not tested positive for Covid, yet it was recorded as the cause of death.
They agreed that, yes, it must distort the national figures — 'and yet the strangest thing is that every winter we record countless deaths from flu, and this winter there have been none. Not one!'
And just like that the rats suddenly started to take an interest in the position and readiness of the lifeboats...
Apparently, the excuse for why the Covid Cult's measures can - apparently - defeat the flu but not the thing they're actually aimed at is because Covid is more contagious than influenza.... except they've spent months telling us that the only reason why Lockdown4Eva hasn't worked is heretics refusing to wear a Boris Burka or indulging in Satanic rituals - like meeting up with friends or sitting on park benches.
Surely there must be some wildly-promiscuous slut out there who jumps from bench to bench, doesn't wear protection and so has died from the flu?
No, not one!
At this point even Third World election results are more reliable than these figures. At least the Supreme Leader of Krapholia has enough sense to only claim to have won 80% of the vote when it's time to vote on making him President For Life.
