NSW Health re-classifies death statistics to ‘died with’ COVID | Video

NSW¬†Health has switched to recording patients as dying ‘with COVID’, instead of ‘from’, as it acknowledges that not all reported deaths are directly linked.

Dr. Jeremy McAnulty said the change in language was because it was ‘very difficult to know’ whether someone with COVID died from the virus, or another health complication.

We have also included a compilation of many other locations across the world who have done the same.
