Belgium has been little talked about. Yet, on the face of it, the EU country has been one of the worst hit by coronavirus.

In deaths per million population, true.  Perhaps because Belgium counts in care home deaths.

Both the UK and France count care home deaths where the doctor suspects Covid has contributed. Not all countries do, so comparisons can be a problem.

It's the excess deaths over a 'normal' year that will probably provide the most accurate picture of how countries compare.

They are also counting "suspected cases", which just adds fuel to the fire of the conspiracy nuts.

In the UK, deaths outside hospital are counted if a physician has mentioned coronavirus as a possible contributory cause of  death. It takes a fortnight before the CQC publishes the figures so the daily figures don't include them.

However, the figures are published.

Interesting how the article negates that Belgium per population is the worst hit.

Of course, all of this depends on the testing.

So these charts are meaningless if the testing levels are wildly different.

First intelligent comment. Led me to read the article and you're right.

You are a coward and a troll.

See - I can say things directly to you.

Oh, and at least learn to spell my name properly.

What am I talking about - I doubt you could spell your own.
