how do you categorise deaths too?

Ben Hammond09:03:22

if you were denied heart attack resus because everyone was too busy with ICU ventilations does that count as a covid-19 death?

Ben Hammond09:03:42

it probably should ...?

Ben Hammond09:03:49

indirect increased mortality

Ben Hammond09:03:52

Excess deaths you can probably calculate in retrospect and project given existing numbers, but the projections will be assumption dependent of course


Just had a lovely coughing fit just after that. Drink went down the wrong tube
