    That more than once thing hasn't been proven and stems from reports of infections due to mutations in Asia. They've had enough infected over a long enough time that they've seen at least 2 strains, possibly 3. I haven't bothered to follow up on that on a week now but there's no evidence yet that reinfection happens.

    Hmm....who's the better killer. Tad over 230 for Corona nationally.
    23,000. For the flu. That's a factor of 100 times more.....and its year after year with hardly anyone blinking an eye at it.

    Let's say the CV hits 5000 deaths, which I highly doubt, it still pails in comparison.

    Could some of those flu deaths be corona ? Sure....but we'll never know that for sure. Could some corona deaths just be the flu ? Possibly also, if they never got tested for it.

    That sort of serology testing for antibodies will be out soon. Doubt you or I would be able to get tested though, since it would require a doctor's order.

    They can test residual antibodies that your system creates from what I understand. I think that this will be needed to understand how long it has really been here and is the current wave a mutation?
