  1. Why are all deaths now reported as COVID-19 deaths at home affairs? This in itself is creating high COVID19 stats ass well as giving the incorrect information. Is this a ploy by the government to shy away from their responsibilities.? Our government is defnitly lying to us. In the week i read a story of a lady who argued her mother died of cancer not COVID-19
