My personal view is that it's only really likely to lead to overcounting if covid is spreading in places with high mortality rates anyway such as hospitals and care homes.

For example I saw a stat today saying that covid CH deaths had increased but it strikes me that this could just reflect an increasing number of 'usual' care home deaths being in people who tested positive (and who may or may not have had serious covid issues).
Exactly, double jabbed care home residents who suffer mild symptoms or none at all who sadly pass away within 28 days of a positive test haven't died of the reason they are in the home but of covid. Doesn't seem right to me.

Always thought it a bit strange, lots of people are dying on day 29 or more of a positive test , The figures must be being massaged.

I think it means what it has always meant throughout this pandemic.

Deaths in this wave have been a fraction of what they were before thanks to the vaccine rollout.

Just look at excess death figures - far better metric that takes the recording methodology off the table.

Very few care home covid cases in the past two months so not impacting government covid death numbers that much
