    Indeed, they don't need or get stats beyond the very basics. Doctors don't even need A level maths.

    When the doctor is writing a death certificate it's a bit too late to help them. Collating the stats isn't their jobs, and they'd be **** at it if they had to.

    This isn't about treating people, this is about stats for those who died. The doctors who wrote the certificates are a tiny part of that process and not the ones best able to see the picture. I wouldn't want a statistician operating on me, nor would I want a doctor to crunch the numbers on deaths. I less they're one of the few people who are both.

    To compile statistics use a statistician. To diagnose hemaroids use a doctor. Whilst one might be right about the others fields is use the right one for the job.

    In this case the ONS. Not someone on RT.

    So, when someone is recorded as dying from covid when, in fact, they did not; how does this show up in your statistics.

    It could be a lie, a damned lie or a statistic, though they can be confused.
