Causes that are theorized: (1) lack of tests; (2) delays in hospital reporting of deaths; (3) delays in aggregation of death figures.(GW) This is extremely anecdotal, and not very surprising. But it's a reminder that deaths-from-COVID maybe not be a reliable metric, if deaths with obvious COVID symptoms are not reported as such due to lack of postmortem testing.Mar 25Mar 25
