I now have the official CDC flu-death statistics for the year 2010.
They were provided to me by Martin Maloney, who, some years ago, contacted me to show how the CDC was lying all the way along the line about numbers of flu deaths. Many thanks, Martin, for your good work.
2010 is apparently the most recent year for which the CDC has issued a final report. It was released on May 13 of this year.
The report comes through a sub-agency of the CDC, the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS).
