    I said at the beginning that a lot of deaths attributed to Covid actually weren't as a result of Covid, just that the deceased tested positive at the time. A lot of 'expected' deaths were classed as Covid when the patient had no hope of recovery from their terminal illness anyway, whilst some 'non-terminal but very seriously ill' people who contracted Covid actually lived longer than expected and in a few cases survived completely beyond all expectations.

    No it wouldn't, not now.

    If he'd died three days ago he'd have been recorded as a Covid-19 death, then he'd have been removed with the latest change.
    It's detailed in Motties link at the top of the thread

    And what about the thousands who were certified of having died from Covid without ever having been tested?, and the possibility that a third of all excess deaths were caused by lockdown rather than covid. Well, that's what a Doctor reckons anyway, but what would he know?

    Hospital deaths have always required positive tests.

    What would he know? Annecdotes, this is why we invented statisticians. If you wanted to know what the status of Covid stats are then ONS would be a good place to look. RT isn't exactly a trustworthy source at the best of times.

    Yeah, he's a doctor so he's probably got less statistics training, education or use than I have.

    Which is to say, not enough to be anywhere near an expert
