In Response To: Influenza is now Covid-19 (Eva Jones, Canada)

Australia had little or no flu this season and covid cases went up for some time but down again.

This means that the restrictions put in to control covid has also helped stop the flu.

If enough people stick to the rules over covid then its R-rate remains low and this helps stop the spread of flu as well, both respiratory diseases.

There is no mystery to this.
