Considering the relatively low number of New Zealand Covid deaths,
I would think we have not gone nuts with classifying deaths as Covid.
Like if we wanted to be deceptive, why such a low number.
Trying to be not seen as hiding cases. Open an honest.
I suppose we classify as Covid until a cause is on official on death certificate, or coroner decides where this is required.
Just about all so far quickly having confirming death certificate, there being a trail of care to hospital, ICU, and then...
Which we have seen in numbers going through ICU at the time.
Then we get one exception that no-one thought of.
We also have privacy of deceased and family while they deal with bereavement unlike certain places.
I expect our bureaucracy has not kept up with the minute by minute fake news cycles.
Apparently we are horribly behind in coroner investigations people complaining they wait ?
So system is slow, inefficient, does not really support a deliberate plan to deceive that antivax transplant from USA crazies.
Death is not the only measure, there is the load on hospitals to ensure death is prevented, and the long covid.
We have examples going around the world, and still going on in USA, UK, EU, Russia etc.
None are so blind...
