On the other hand, it is more deadly to the old, and those with certain underlying health conditions of all ages, particularly those in long term care facilities.

Rather than staying at 30,000 feet and simply comparing deaths across all groups, flu vs Covid, one school of thought is to focus on protecting the at-risk, and letting those with lower risk than a typical flu live their lives, go to school, etc, with om precautions.
