Letter to the editor – September 22, 20121

Dear editor,

I noticed stories the last few days mentioned that deaths from Covid in the U.S. had surpassed those of the Spanish flu during World War I. Each being in the neighborhood of 675,000.

That is a nice comparison, except it is rather meaningless when populations of the nation during the two pandemics are noted.
