Aren't the graphs measuring different things? You're measuring the numbers of confirmed/known cases of the flu (when no special measures are taken) vs this virus where lots of special measures have been taken...
Also lots of people get the flu and never see a doctor even though they have pretty bad symptoms (I remember when I had a very nasty flu and never got near a doctor cause I had no health insurance).
I can agree that it's folly to think that the virus can be contained through lock downs and agree on the need to get economies and institutional life back up to speed but this wasn't just the flu in lots of ways (first and foremost since it was born in China where nothing the government says can be trusted nowhere else in the world had any idea of what to expect and so caution was called for... now? not so much).
