    No and definitely no.

    Many people that actually died because of COVID did not have it listed as a cause of death.

    Our numbers are neither correct nor exaggerated.

    The real number who died because of COVID is much higher.

    Our numbers are far too low to be correct.

    Crazy exaggeration. Those with only symptoms of covid that had a heart attack, stroke or liver failure etc were put down as covid deaths. Most numbers are false.

    The numbers are fair, but can't be perfect. In some states, especially early on, police would comment about more people dying at home, but they weren't tested or counted as Covid victims; some died indirectly of Covid such as high risk people who didn't get other kinds of medical care because of Covid, in some cases people died of Covid related strokes but their deaths were classified as caused by strokes not Covid, and if there's any politics involved by either side on the state level (where the reports are made) it would be to understate the number of deaths. So my feeling is that the numbers are a good approximation and could be off 10% either way.

    It's far more likely that there are many more people that died of Covid, but had their cause of death listed as something else, and that the death toll is under counted, since as you say, they weren't tested for Covid.
