Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
Please can you explain why the phrase "died having tested positive for Covid19/Coronavirus" is used in your news reports?
Does this phrase mean that someone died of something completely unrelated to Covid19/Coronavirus but had coincidentally tested positive for the virus?
Who advised that the phrase "died having tested positive for Covid19/Coronavirus" should be used during your news reports?
