|'Covid has mortality rate on par with flu.' - This is wrong.
Covid-19's mortality rate is much higher. How much higher is still being investigated, but even the most optimistic take indicates that it is at least 3 times as high. And this is the best-case-scenario. However, what you also have to take into account is that covid-19 is much-much more infectious than the regular flu. So even if we took the best case scenario that it is just 3 times higher in mortality rate, we would still end up with a many, many times more deaths because it has a higher infection rate.
