It is so nice to see scientists finally catching up to the stuff that a considerable portion of the country has already been doing for nearly 40 months.

Has COVID-19 become no more dangerous than the flu for most people?

That's a question that scientists are debating as the country heads into a third pandemic winter. Early in the pandemic, COVID was estimated to be 10 times more lethal than the flu, fueling many people's fears.

"We have all been questioning, 'When does COVID look like influenza?''' says Dr. Monica Gandhi, an infectious disease specialist at the University of California, San Francisco. "And, I would say, 'Yes, we are there.'"

Not everyone is happy about this, though:

If Taylor Lorenz is against it, folks, I'm all for it!
