Scientists who studied nose & throat swabs from patients infected with #SARSCoV2 say it behaves more like #influenza than other closely related coronaviruses, suggesting it may spread more easily than previously believed.

Completely agree @onisillos. #Influenza has always been a major global #publichealth problem but people do not seem to care about the #flu. #FightFlu @famfightflu pic.twitter.com/WnqGFIQ147
Some have questioned discussion of #COVID19 using influenza for perspective. They feel this is downplaying the new disease. It isn’t. The problem is that we have consistently failed to communicate the seriousness of influenza
🤧Comparing #COVID19 & #influenza for perspective isn't downplaying #COVID2019. The #flu is serious. Over 9 million cases; over 12,000 deaths EACH YEAR year since 2010 in the US alone. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. [h/t @onisillos @AriefWi48645487] #FightFlu @famfightflu @VacciniRIV pic.twitter.com/UMTqzvLTAp
An interesting side effect of the Covid-19 infection fears is that they appear to have reduced seasonal influenza infection by more than half in Japan. This is because people are taking much greater care to protect themselves from infection. (MP) #Influenza #Covid19 #Japan
