Re: Heil-quote says: 'Died with', not 'Died of'. Hacks are waking up to that crucial distinction, since
I thought the use of 'with' was just the memo that the media had got from the tories to help play down the crisis - the bbc were doing it first, at about the same time they started trying to sort of revive the herd immunity idea (as described in the video below). I think dan explained in a previous post about comorbidities and how they're recorded - eg with aids, the patient doesn't die from aids/hiv, but the comorbidities, like pneumonia - but you wouldn't say they would have died anyway - this could also be the case with covid19 - it would technically be pneumonia that kills many people, not covid19, but they woulnd't have had it without getting covid19. Dan would eplain this point better.
