Don't forget that no one has died of old age since March.
I guess that you are (humorously) suggesting that all deaths, e.g. of old age, nowadays are being ascribed to corona. Quite recently, someone were suggesting that even traffic deaths were counted as corona deaths if any person in the car where corona-infected.

It seems like CDC has some different figures: Excess Deaths[^]. Compared to earlier years, the excess death count is actually far higher than the official corona death count.

The excess may of course have some totally unrelated explanation. But we are talking about hundred thousand deaths in addition to the corona deaths. You would expect there to be some hint to the cause, if the majority of them are unrelated to corona.
