It would be understandable if you think Alberta Premier Jason Kenney really wants people to believe that COVID-19 is like "strains of influenza" we've seen before.

"One thing I think we're learning, epidemiologically, is that that population has a very high level of immune resistance, of immunity and resilience against an influenza of this nature," Kenney told the legislature Wednesday.

This week the premier repeatedly made comments downplaying the threat of the virus to the general population, referring to COVID-19 as an "influenza that does not generally threaten life apart from the most elderly."
