While it’s way too soon to compare the numbers, H3N2 has so far proved deadlier than COVID-19. Between 1968 and 1970, the Hong Kong flu killed between an estimated 1 and 4 million, according to the CDC and Encyclopedia Britannica, with US deaths exceeding 100,000.

I remember a kids cartoon from the 70s called Hong Kong Phooey. That was back when we didn't have a class of professionally-offended snowflakes.
