Did COVID cured Flu?

During the 2019 flu season from Sept. 29 to Dec. 28, the CDC reported more than 65,000 cases of influenza nationwide. During the same period this flu season, the agency reported 1,016 cases. So did the COVID cured the flu?

USA Today reported:

During the 2019 flu season from Sept. 29 to Dec. 28, the CDC reported more than 65,000 cases of influenza nationwide. During the same period this flu season, the agency reported 1,016 cases.

So what happened? Did the COVID cured the flu?

Of course not. A more logical answer would be that every flu cases / deaths are in fact also counted as COVID cases / deaths, thus reducing the bottom-line number of flu cases.

Of course CDC has the "if it's not for our forced measures" convenience excuse:

Health experts said that high vaccination rates against the flu – combined with social distancing, mask-wearing and hand-washing employed to stop the spread of the coronavirus – played a huge role in preventing influenza transmission.

So the measures that are meant to stop COVID is stopping the flu but not COVID. It almost like COVID is such an unstoppable virus, yet it is well-reported that many celebrities who have had COVID did not show any symptoms nor pass it onto their loves on with close-contact before they were diagnosed.

It is sarcastic to say that "COVID cured the Flu".

However, it would be a fact to say "WHO and CDC renamed flu to COVID".
