Let's take a little trip to the countryside

Nobody is arguing that, mete. The double whammy concern was based on a scenario where long-term wholescale measures to combat coronavirus were not implemente. It was back when 'flattening the curve' was all the rage, and restrictions were supposed to just be a temporary measure to stop hospitals getting overrun. It was not a concern once we'd gone full North Korea in Winter.
A search shows that the only time I used the phrase 'double whammy', was from March, when lockdowns had only just begun, in response to Splinty tagging me about it, basically just saying that flu season would screw Melbourne.
In the same post I said summer would NOT save the US like some were predicting. I was right. Just like I was right that winter would fuck Melbourne. Just like I am again right that winter will fuck the northern hemisphere. Because I am the god damn coronavirus rain maker, son.
This stuff is pretty easy to understand. Winter = Flu season = more coronavirus spreading.
