CORONAVIRUS/VACCINES: “Months ago, we increased our nation’s procurement of the flu vaccine by 66 percent, and we ask Americans to go get their annual flu shot as early as possible. It’s possible, I would imagine, Scott, that the flu can get mixed up with the virus, and people can think it’s the virus when actually it’s another flu season coming on. I don’t know, it’s — I hope they can keep them separate. Can they keep them separate?”

[Dr. Scott Atlas, White House adviser: “We hope so.”]

“Huh? I doubt they will. It’s going to be a very interesting time.

But we have a flu season coming up. We’ve had some flu seasons, which are really massive over the years — over many years. And we have some that are much less so. But it’s still significant, so I hope they can separate them, because it’s — it’s pretty close.”
