Not acute respiratory distress syndrome, not even pneumonia or respiratory failure or multiple organ failure, but just covid-19, nothing else. It's one of those few "authentic" covid-19 death certificates, I guess. Actually it's incorrect if it lists covid-19 as the proximal cause of death.
When someone says there's only 5,000 death certificates or whatever that say covid-19 as the cause of death, then you know there are 5,000 incorrectly completed death certificates. No one has ever died from covid-19. It's heart failure, multiple organ failure, respiratory failure, stroke, or something else, CAUSED BY covid-19. Which is odd, because I've never seen a heart attack where the cause of death is coronary artery disease. It's always myocardial infarction secondary to coronary artery disease or hyperlipidemia, or whatever. Same for influenza. Never seen influenza as a cause of death by itself. Usually ARDS, secondary to pneumonia, secondary to influenza.
