Generally speaking it is better to be on the safe side than the sorry side so true figures should always be presented, however were the cause of
death is uncertain an estimate is all they may be able to arrive at.
Over in the US you have a different approach and many organizations that will fight for the truth.
Over here in the UK it is a bit different, we have a Tory Government in power and they are used to lying about all manner of thing's, the term they
use is MASSAGING the figures - read Lying outright, one way they did this with our unemployment figures was only to record those actively receiving
monetary assistance from the government and finding all manner of way's to hide the true figure by deliberately NOT recording those that they decided
to NOT give any help to regardless of whether they were employed or not AND also if they were employed and had say two hours a week of voluntary work
down at a charity or something they would also use that to claim that these people were NOT unemployed.
Unfortunately for us over in the UK this lying habit is ingrained in our Tory government so deeply they have also been doing this over the death toll
of this virus, we have them only revealing Confirmed cases - in our case about 15000 as of yesterday while at the same time ignoring unconfirmed cases
such as a possible 7500+ number of cases from retirement homes (we call them old folk's homes or nursing homes - God only know's how I despise those
that pack there elderly relatives off to live in those places like prisoners waiting on death row just so that they can sell there homes and pocket
the money - too many of that despicable ilk over here these day's), so as you can see if the government here were to be more honest they would say
15000 confirmed, possibly more like approaching 23000 as of yesterday in real term's and potentially higher numbers if taking other sources of
unconfirmed death's that match the virus into the count.
It is not about the public either, our government want's to keep the true figure down so that it does not come back to bit them from there early
mishandling at the next election - but to be fair I think Boris has handled it possibly better than his predecessors would have even if he did drag
his feet a while before getting down to work on the matter - and then coming down with a mild case himself.
I do think your nation is pushing for an end to the lock down too soon however, this is a real virus despite some lunatic idea's on this and other
sites and it is a genuine threat to life for a great many people in our society's, it is not a civilization ending virus but it is one that will scar
our society's forever if left to go unchecked.
