The point is that hospitals are built to handle the numbers that come from seasonal flu, but this is an addition and in great numbers. Imagine if we had a new bubonic plague.

Thankfully the flu season is on its last leg and infection rates are going down. Hopefully this will help free up beds in hospitals for those sickened by Covid.
