Interesting data on the “Spanish Flu” is published by accident

[New York Times] tried to say covid was like the plague, but worse, trust us! They were trying to make the point that in 2020 the death rate in NYC skyrocketed. Seems like they don’t want to show the data after 2020, that will look very bad for the official narrative, and will reinforce the anti-vax sentiment…

However, what really attracted me to this chart is the accidental truth about the so-called “Spanish Flu” that it revealed. Spanish Flu was supposed to be the black death bigger than the black death until the current black death came along… But seems like in reality it was not a big deal. A blip, relatively speaking in comparison to the 1850’s.
