    There is this tweet going around about Italian covid deaths

Well, I don’t understand Italian but what I think the report actually says is that 3788 died who didn’t have comorbidities. If there are any italian readers here, please confirm. The link to the pdf is here: https://www.iss.it/documents/20126/0/ReportDecessi_per+COVID+2019_ITA19ottobre.pdf/11374e03-48f7-d516-f5c2-240a91af1f69?t=1634643235212

I am on a tablet otherwise I would see if I could get Google to mangle it into English.

What strikes me is that they counted deaths with “Covid-positive test results”.  No attempt was made to differentiate betwen deaths from covid and deaths with covid.

I’ve personally seen a drowning victim counted as a “Covid death” due to a positive post-mortem test, so the numbers, as usual, become meaningless.
