I would be more acceptable to these facts if they didn't keep smudging the figures.
They will not say how many actually die directly of covid. The 'within 28 days' is a nonsense'
The obvious conclusion is, you tested positive with no ill effects but a month later you died of something - we'll mark it down as a covid death?
There was a BMA guidelines document floating about last year that said Covid could be listed as a cause of death 'if suspected and without a positive test'
I've had a few gob-swab tests to visit my son in a care home. Ten minute wait for it to show negative and then we can mix.
Then a while later I get a confirmation text from NHS which says "Your coronavirus lateral flow test result is negative. It's likely you are not infectious. But a negative test is not a guarantee, and there's still a chance you may be infectious."
So totally bloody pointless then?
