That's for you to prove, as what you have just said is a conspiracy theory in itself.
The (Tory) UK government by it's own televised admission (Sunday night health briefings) is guilty of inflating the figures. I know because I live in the UK, I don't rely on misreported stuff on your US networks.
To suggest that anyone thinking that governments are inflating the figur ...[text shortened]... ld really functions. Totalitarianism is totalitarianism whether you call it left wing or right wing.
I really don't see how the government can possibly think that the coronavirus deaths statistics are overcounted. There are three sets of statistics. Those that have died within 28 days of testing positive for coronavirus provided by the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England . People that tested positive for coronavirus, but died of something else are included in this, however it is the smallest of the three sets of figures (currently 44,200). People who had Covid-19 written on their death certificates as a cause of death are published by the Office of National Statistics on Tuesdays. Last Tuesday that total was up to 49,001 for just England and Wales . Then there is the excess of all cause deaths over the average for the preceding five years. This comes to 54,365 (England and Wales only) . The evidence is therefore that the Official figures, if anything, underestimate the fatality rate from Covid-19.
Incidentally, the deaths per million (28 days after test) is: 651 (UK)
Deaths per million (covid-19 written on death certificate) is: 842 (England and Wales)
Deaths per million (excess deaths over 5 year average) is: 935 (England and Wales).
According to world-o-meters Belgium is reporting 843 deaths per million. It's been a mild 'flu season so that's lucky.
