The UK is also counting all suspected covid deaths as well as confirmed ones, if someone dies of a heart attack here while they are proven to have covid, they are claiming covid as the cause of death, if covid is even mentioned on the death certificate they are adding it to the tally, the scientists here are saying that the only real way to know for sure the true toll of each country is to look at the all cause excess mortality rate once it’s all over.Belgium numbers are higher because we count more dead where other country don't take them up in there numbers. Or that is at least what they tell us in news every day, that is is hard to compair the country because if the different way of counting in some cases.
They say that in other country the xount can go up after they 'correct' this en alter the numbers after the pandemic.
We count fore example every covid infected dead as covid dead even if it was sent the real cod. And the suspected covid dead at also counted there where in other country only the confirmed covid dead at counted.
