Given everything I've read about Covid-19, I'm not sure there is a clear criteria for determining when a person who died while infected with Covid-19 had a direct vs. indirect death. If I die three years early of an "underlying condition" aggravated by Covid-19, did I die of Covid-19? Because here in California we had the shutdown to give time to prepare the hospitals, the only number that means something to me is reflected in this chart: Californians shut down and Californians have opened up with limits. No one ever said we were going to prevent the spread nor the deaths. Fortunately for us oldies, we have been able to remain on our property since March 13.
