Anyone who died while Covid-infected is included in the Ministry of Health’s number of deceased. That can include those who have not passed away because of Covid-19.
The Ministry of Health are finally fessing-up to what we have known all along. You could be hit by a bus and killed but if you return a positive Covid test, you’re counted as a corona-virus death.
That means for example, that in the current “Delta Outbreak” of 33 “Covid deaths, there were actually…
- 9 cardiovascular disease cases,
- 5 chronic lung disease cases
- 7 diabetes cases
- 8 other chronic underlying conditions
So that’s 29 of the 33 “Covid deaths” that weren’t primarily caused by Covid!
