Smolny explained inconsistencies in statistics of deaths from COVID-19

Deputy of Legislative Assembly of Petersburg Boris Vishnevsky had found inconsistencies in statistics of deaths from COVID-19. He was surprised that the official number of deaths from the coronavirus does not coincide with the number of applications that the hospital sent to the CPS with the question of the burial of the dead from infection or suspected to have it.

the St. Petersburg Committee on health explained why the numbers differ.

“the Data presented on the website STOPMANAGER reflect the number of deaths that have novel coronavirus infection was the primary cause of death. Meanwhile, in the first half of 2020 at over 2400 people COVID – 19 have been identified, but they died from the effects of severe chronic diseases. So, if a person dies from a heart attack or stroke, and coronavirus infection is the main and concomitant disease, he falls into the statistics of deaths from heart attack or stroke. If a person dies in an accident and he was posthumously found the carriage COVID-19, the main cause of the accident. In that case, if a person’s lifetime was community acquired pneumonia and the clinical picture COVID-19, but the presence of coronavirus infection could not be confirmed in laboratory, it is buried by the same rules that patient with COVID-19” — said the Committee.

“Not very convincing, in my opinion,” wrote Wisniewski in social networks. He calculated that the data is still disagree — about 2.5 times.

Recall that in St. Petersburg Rospotrebnadzor reported that from the beginning of April to 25 June in the office 4 937 thousand requests from medical institutions related to the need for clarification of the order and method of burial of persons dying in the diagnosis of COVID-19, and of deaths from community-acquired pneumonia and suspected coronavirus.

At the same time, according to official data from the beginning of the pandemic in the city died 1 thousand 807 people.
