covid is not the only coronavirus either, its just more deadly then previous ones.
they are completely different species, so the short answer is: genetic makeup. they are as different as a tiger is from a cheetah. a cheetah is not a tiger with a handful of mutations, it is very very different.
its new, we have few defenses, and if its breaking out, it probably has some unique adaptations that make it incredibly virulent with new ways of accessing the body or attacking cells that we are not used to.
the seasonal flu mostly kills old and sick people whos normal defenses have failed them. pandemic flus like the spanish flu or H1N1 kill many more because they happen to be more infectious, more potent, and we have fewer defendes.
let me make 3 analogies
seasonal flu to different seasonal flu is like siberian tiger to african tiger. (same species with a few changes)
spanish flu to seasonal flu is like tiger to cheetah (different species, same family)
covid to flu is like comparing big dogs to big cats (different families, both can still eat you tho)
How exactly is Seasonal Flu different from Spanish Flu?
those must be terribly made charts. saying they have the same effect is like saying a light cup of coffee is the same as a triple espresso. sure they may have the same effect, but the intensity is VERY different.
you can compare Coronavirus to the flu (both families of viruses)
or you can compare covid to the seasonal flu.
otherwise your asking who would win, a pack of wolves or a big cat.... that depends alot on the big cat. a tiger is very different than a cheetah even if they are in the same family.
Weather there is different types of Flus they all have the same effect. Just cause there is several deferent types of Flus does not mean they are entirely different. Even if they are families they are all at the end of the day the Flu. Some charts compare Covid-19 to the Flu without saying what flu.
covid vs which flu?
season flu? covid worse.
spanish flu? flu worse.
your comparing a specific virus to a family of viruses. your question is wrong.
