The CDC has 1999-2007 day-by-day influenza and pneumonia mortality table files that can be downloaded from https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/mortality/gmwk305.htm

Even in the middle of summer 2007, 100 Americans a day were dying from influenza and pneumonia. That's worth keeping in mind when the media talks about covid as eradicable or as "still one of the deadliest health problems."
