How many people die in the United States each year from the flu?

There is much confusion about the answer primarily because of unethical TV analysts using obviously invalid values. A common value cited in September 2021 was 68,000 deaths per year. This number was adopted and even rounded up to 70,000 deaths, and a few even rounded up to 100,000 deaths per year. They do this in a disingenuous attempt to bolster their argument of the day. Perhaps it’s a small point, but here are the actual numbers:

From 2010 through 2019,
