Apparently not very well...

The actual number of deaths related to seasonal flu may vary, but  the point is they're not nearly as high as covid-related deaths, that was my original point -- that to relate the two is a spurious argument.  And that doesn't even include the massive numbers of covid-related hospitalizations that are far worse than during even heavier flu seasons.

By the way, here is what the article states regarding the typical numbers (which isn't all that important when related to covid):

Overall, the CDC estimates that 12,000 and 61,000 deaths annually since 2010 can be blamed on the flu. The higher number reflects the particularly harsh 2017-2018 flu season. Most years, the US death toll from the flu is closer to 34,000 to 43,000. Globally, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the flu kills 290,000 to 650,000 people per year.
