"Covid deaths are rising sharply in the UK ... That's because some people die with Covid rather than from it... There are a number of ways we monitor the number of deaths connected to Covid. The most prominent is the daily count of anyone who has died within 28 days of testing positive... But there has always been a minority who died from another cause. And with Omicron infecting so many people, there is a higher likelihood of people dying from an unrelated reason... So a small portion of the daily Covid deaths would be "coincidental"..."
