    The Trumptard minions & alt-right agitators are totally offbase on this one. Doctors do not even determine a cause of death. That's the job of the county medical examiner. So the rumor that doctors or hospitals get PAID or somehow benefit for coronavirus deaths is utterly ludicrous.

    The M.E. lists the primary or immediate cause of death, then any overall condition or disease factor contributing to that. Example: *pneumonia would be primary, then secondary cause listed would be Covid-19.

    CDC reports that 9200 people died directly from covid. ALL the rest has severe co-morbidity that was a leading factor in their deaths.

    From your symptoms or the autopsy.

    It doesn’t matter. If COVID was involved, it’s a COVID death even if it wasn’t really the cause. That’s why the numbers are exaggerated.
