Supposedly, Canada’s flu season took a hiatus last year. Recorded flu cases were so low they failed to pass the minimum threshold set out by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
PHAC recorded a mere 69 influenza cases for the 2020-21 flu season. There are about 52,000 cases detected during a regular flu season. . @fordnation @celliottability To-date Public Health Agency of Canada reports-“influenza activity exceptionally LOW”-“NO evidence of comm circulation”-“NO influenza-assoc hospitalizations”UNPRECEDENTED. Hosps typically overwhelmed w/influenza—now additional capacity for Covid https://t.co/UH6xCbgPI1 — Kulvinder Kaur MD (@dockaurG) December 21, 2020 The experts suggest COVID-19 is to blame, though they are unsure of the trend of the following flu season, reported Global News.
Dr. Gerald Evans, an infectious disease specialist at Queen’s University and Kingston Health Sciences Centre, said comparatively, Australia is reporting “historically low levels” of influenza, per a report on the government’s website.
A World Health Organization report substantiated that funding, adding, “Globally, despite continued or even increased testing for influenza in some countries, influenza activity remained at lower levels than expected for this time of the year.”
Angela Crawley, a scientist at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and professor at the University of Ottawa, attributes two reasons for the sudden decline in influenza.
First, she claims that despite what the WHO report implies, people in some countries may not test for or report flu cases like before.
“The pandemic closed us in, and so people were not going to the doctor for their flu-like symptoms,” said Crawley, adding those who received a negative COVID-19 test result went home.

“They probably had the flu, possibly, but that wasn’t being tested,” she said.
Second, Crawley said the measures used to restrict the spread of COVID-19 likely contained the flu too.”The personal protective equipment, like the wearing of the masks and the significant effect of social distancing, may have had [an effect] on the number or the prevalence of the virus in the community,” she said.Evans said this leaves things uncertain as Canada heads into the next flu season.”The closest prediction I can get is I think we’re going to see more numbers than we saw […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
