Let's play a game: Find the pandemic in this graph, which depicts numbers for acute respiratory diseases, incl. Influenza (which has a similar lethality to COVID-19), in Germany.
(Data is from the RKI, which is the official source for government decisions: https://grippeweb.rki.de)

@erm67 It was not different. That's literally what ARE means. And I didn't say COVID wasn't also part of the ARE curves, which is utterly irrelevant in the face of the numbers presented.
