The Deadliest Viruses on Earth

Make no mistake – COVID-19 is bad. The worst pathogen in human history, however, is by far influenza. “If there is a virus that keeps me up at night, it’s influenza. I put it at the top of the list from a worldwide standpoint,” says Dr. John Swartzberg, clinical professor emeritus of infectious diseases and vaccinology at the University of California—Berkeley School of Public Health.


Editors note: This article from March 2020 clearly states that that Covid was likely not to be as bad as influenza, which tops the list of deadly viruses - so why have we had to endure lockdowns, closure of businesses and schools, quarantines, mandatory mask wearing, isolation of children and the elderly and many more draconian measures that have severely impacted us financially, physically and emotionally?
