I cannot speak to everywhere but I know that at least on my city and among some friends and relatives, at some point this was a concern "They're not really checking if they *truly* died of Covid!"
However and this is key, most of those arguments quickly went away once that we saw the news that all our hospitals in a city with 5.3 million in population, where at 100% capacity with dozens of new patients with significant symtoms being reported everyday.
Not quite true. Those arguments did not go away. PCR tests are very inaccurate when run at high cycles, which seems to be the case in the US and Europe. https://swprs.org/the-trouble-with-pcr-tests. So it's entirely legitimate to question the official figures.
100% hospital bed usage doesn't mean they're overloaded. https://www.whatyourbossthinks.com/...ital-occupancy-rate-how-beds-increase-profit/
In our county of 225,000, we have had 9000 cases and 125 deaths. So cases are 4% and deaths are 0.06%. Nobody in my social circle knows anyone who died or was even seriously ill. I know of only one person who even got corona. That was my mom. She had sniffles and was over it in a couple of days.
By the way, US covid death rates are at the lowest levels in a year and a half.
