Iā€™m often told my timeline is too negative.

So happy Monday everyone, and here are some genuine #positives from the last year of the COVID pandemic. /thread #silverlinings
1. COVID is now being suppressed globally - but influenza is being absolutely flattened. 5445 influenza samples sent last week, and 0% positive.

The natural R of influenza is 1.3, while COVID is 4-5 now. So whatever reduces transmission of COVID will CRUSH flu.
