I guess the issue is that the actual Covid 19 virus is not the actual killer. What it does is effectively weaken the body to such an extent that other, underlying, causes then manifest themselves hence why I believe that almost all Covid deaths occur in people with two underlying medical issues already.

So I guess they take the 28 day period as the cut off for those other issue to either kill the patient or else be dealt with, hence the bus victim being included but I would assume such accidental deaths are probably for the purposes of the statistics deemed irrelevant.

And from a political POV it is better for them to over-estimated deaths than under because then they are accused of covers ups rather than just being to pessimistic.

Haha, does this mean being unable to avoid being driven over by a bus is an underlying condition?

I don't go for this death ratio crap being spouted by the government. Yes, its dangerous for the elderly who have health problems, but so is hot weather, so is winter flu, so is any number of other health issues. The death stats post initial lockdown simply don't justify the level of response. The trouble is, all of the people making decisions in this Country are paid by the government so they have no issue with lockdowns etc as they have not suffered one jot. If the country was run by a business oriented group we would more likely have gone the Swedish route and now be fully open for business.

Any hint of another lockdown is going to financially ruin this country, like it isn't already ruined.
