Remember just two weeks ago when a long list of conservative publishers (and even some doctors) rolled out “bad math” articles that claimed the seasonal flu had a ten times higher fatality rate than coronavirus? They all now look strangely disconnected from reality as the real coronavirus death numbers continue to climb, debunking their bizarre theories rooted in mathematical illiteracy.

With the coronavirus pandemic now killing over 1,000 Americans per day, it has achieved a daily mortality total that’s ten times higher than daily regular flu deaths, on average.

Here’s a run down of the real numbers:

According to the CDC, the seasonal flu killed 34,157 people through the 2018 – 2019 flu season. Averaged over a calendar year, that’s nearly 94 people per day. Yes, it’s true that those deaths are clustered during the winter flu season (about half a year), but we’ll address that in a bit.

Today, coronavirus deaths in the United States have surpassed 1,000 in a single day… and they’re expected to rise to over 2,200 per day by mid-April, according to the Trump administration.

That means coronavirus is now killing ten times as many Americans per day than the seasonal flu does per day, on average.

The following graph, from, shows the daily death totals as of yesterday. Today, it’s over the 1,000 mark:

DO THE MATH: The seasonal flu kills only around 35,000 per flu season, while the coronavirus may kill 240,000 in just the next few months, according to the White House
