18. There's also the issue of conspiracy theories.

One, in particular, comes to mind: The one having to do with alleged lying about official cause of death to exaggerate COVID deaths. A lot of people, including my jackass brother, believe that COVID-19 is being blamed for deaths from other causes, such as heart disease and diabetes. They can't comprehend that coroners will list all the health issues on the death certificate, even if they don't directly lead to the person's death. Many also buy into the conspiracy that doctors get more money for treating COVID-19 patients, so they lie about what actually afflicts their patients. In their minds, these aren't really pandemic deaths, so there's no pandemic to make them sick.
