This graph, which reflected data in Ontario at it’s time of production in September 2020, compared the data on recovery rates of the flu season in 2018 (2019 data was not available at the time of production) and that of COVID-19. The data clearly reflects similar trends in recoveries as expressed in a percentage to that of a typical flu season.

Given the severity of COVID being so similar to the typical flu season, does it warrant the overreaction we have seen by our governments? does it justify further lockdowns? destroying more businesses and families?
