Deaths 161,328 divided by 3 by US population of 331,211,734 = .05%

A death is classified as Covid-19 if the patient had tested positive for it regardless of the actual cause of death.

39,000,000 – 56,000,000 flu illnesses 410,000 – 740,000 flu hospitalizations hospital room icon 24,000 – 62,000 flu deaths

"COVID-19: There have been approximately 715,163 deaths reported worldwide. In the U.S, 160,104 people have died of COVID-19, as of August 7, 2020.*
Flu: The World Health Organization estimates that 290,000 to 650,000 people die of flu-related causes every year worldwide.
In the U.S., from Oct. 1, 2019 – Apr. 4, 2020, the CDC estimates that 24,000 to 62,000 people died from the flu. (The CDC does not know the exact number because the flu is not a reportable disease in most parts of the U.S.)"
