From previous CDC data on influenza deaths (CDC - Page Not Found
Annual deaths from influenza have ranged from 12,000 to 61,000 over past 10 years.
Therefore COVID-19 (having already killed 251,000 people) has a 4-20x higher death rate than the “flu”.
Yes, there is a flu vaccine which likely reduces the number of flu deaths but then again, the COVID-19 deaths are set on a background of massive public health interventions. What would the COVID-19 death toll be if we had done nothing?
From your link, tell us: what is the flu's deaths/hospitalizations ratio? (The CFR, in ordinary terms.)

Now, be more wary of naive comparisons.
