Covid response critic Ivor Cummins discusses The Sunday Times report yesterday that Mayo coroner Patrick O’Connor (top) believes death figures reported by Nphet “do not have a scientific basis”.
Mr O’Connor, a public information officer for the Coroners Society of Ireland, told the paper
“In reality, a lot of people have terminal cancer or multiple serious co-morbidities. People can die from Covid or with Covid. I think numbers that are recorded as Covid deaths may be inaccurate and do not have a scientific basis.
“When a person is suffering from a number of medical conditions which will or may lead to their death at some short time in the future, if they are unlucky enough to be infected by the Covid virus, that is recorded as the principal cause of death.”
