OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

There are also data protection issues.  In reality it is confidential.  We don't go splashing details of every death around the public domain.  The family may not wish to consent to it.

Not sure the family have a say to be honest. Keeping it out of hatched matched and dispatched may be in their power but if the death is from Covid-19, they may not have control of that info. Only my guess, but had read about similar across the pond.

But you don't need to specify x in that case.  You just say "died from another condition which we are satisfied was not exacerbated by his viral infection" or something similar.  And you offer reassurance about shielding and so on.  No one is alleging a cover-up here, just that poor communication will make some people think that there might have been.

Or alternatively they could have simply died of covid and communicated that.

They've already released the non personal details.

They haven’t really. They’ve said someone has died of COVID-19 when it may well be that someone has died after testing positive for COVID-19. There is a very big difference there which I’m sure would be beneficial for them to clarify given some of the things being said and presented as “fact” on social media.

There isn't a legal requirement to inform the public of a birth marriage or death aside of the recording of it ultimately.  Announcing stuff in the paper is a personal decision.

I agree about that, but cause of death in the midst of a pandemic is different I think. I know they hid aids deaths, but this is more serious isn’t it ?

We should hope then that one of the press ask a very clear question to HQ or DA and get an honest answer.

I would be very surprised if your second sentence is true.

Death is a matter of public record. But it doesn't mean it has to be recorded or announced anywhere other than in the Registry .

GDPR doesn't apply to dead people, but other legislation around medical records does.

The statement is clear.  They died of Covid.  That's the statement. What needs clarifying?

Only idiots pay attention to social media hysteria.  You should know.
