what is a noncovid related death and why are we counting them? did i miss something in class teacher?

I believe a noncovid related death is someone who has been tested positive for covid who subsequently dies but covid is deemed not to have been the cause of death.

That's it exactly. It's still counted in the overall total cases because it's a positive test result, but it's not counted as a COVID death.

But if a pre-existing condition is aggravated and made fatal by the deadly Communist China Virus, then the resulting death should be attributed to Covid-19 and not the pre-existing condition.

... even more interesting is that I recently found out that autopsies are not being performed on suspected COVID cases, so how do they know what caused the death?? This is just an attempt to keep the deaths from the virus as low as possible. Minnis did the same thing in 2012 with dengue. People were dying WITH dengue, not FROM dengue. The official death toll for deaths from dengue was 1 !!

Some people refuse to believe it's a problem until it happens to them or their family.
