Since October alone, 20,000 people died from flu complications in the US, which has led to one expert describing the coronavirus as a “blip”.
Coronavirus news: Flu a bigger threat than new virus, experts warn
The death toll for the new outbreak of the coronavirus has now exceeded 3,000, with almost 92,000 people infected across the planet. Medical authorities are still puzzled by the mysterious outbreak, dubbed 2019-nCoV or simply novel coronavirus, meaning it is a new strain which has yet to be identified and have been unable to identify a source.
However, the virus is not nearly as deadly as the common flu, which experts have warned should still take priority in the medical battle.
Influenza can lead to thousands of deaths a year, with the University of Oxford stating that in 2008-2009, there were 13,000 deaths in the UK alone related to the flu.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that an average of up to 500,000 people die annually across the globe due to the flu.
