Are we done talking about relative severity of 2019 flu seasons?

Remember that according to the data and the "dry tinder" theory, Sweden was one of the many countries that experienced a very mild 2019 flu season (like the US) that left a lot of deaths ready for Covid to reap in 2020 that wouldn't have normally been there and that Norway, Denmark, and Finland all had normal 2019s (for reasons I don't know) that wiped out more of that tinder.

If you follow the "dry tinder" theory, that explains differences between other Scandinavian countries, and the nursing home issues that a lot of places got wrong early account for the differences between Sweden's actual case and its best case.
