I am on the board of trustees of a hospital in Brooklyn, NY which was the global epicenter for COVID. I can assure you that there is no effort to classify deaths as COVID if they were due to some other malady.

In England all deaths where there was a positive test in the last four weeks is booked as a 'covid related death'. A friend's daughter is a nurse at a local hospital and tells of a man who died of a brain injury following a car crash. He had tested positive three weeks previously and this was booked as a convid related death.

I've checked on our government's site and they say that this is the best way to collect the statistics.
