Covid related death shouldn't take weeks or months to determine.

It's a simple statement of fact. That's suspicious to some people I suppose.

It's called editorializing, look it up.

Doctor: "These symptoms look like cancer."

Patient: "Cancer doesn't exist." Dies.

News: "Patient with cancer symptoms dies."

Anonymous Internet person: "News is clutching at straws!"

There's good reason for people to doubt a diagnosis since in many cases they happen to be wrong: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the-current-for-april-20-2017-1.4076044/can-anything-be-done-to-prevent-hospital-misdiagnoses-1.4076140

But in the end your analogy is irrelevant to this topic.

Don't confuse 'symptoms' with 'diagnosis'

your analogy is irrelevant to this topic

How about this for "journalism"?:

While the BC Coroners Service has yet to release the exact cause of Mak Parhar's death, it appears as though it may have been from an untreated case of COVID-19 - days before his death he noted he was medicating with Tylenol and Advil, then the day before he passed away he shared an online video where he said he had taken the unapproved anti-parasite drug Ivermectin. https://www.vancouverisawesome.com/opinion/mak-parhar-dies-covid19-4728353

That would have fit OP's title a little better.

Keep in mind that if speculation wasn't allowed .win would have about 0.01% of its posts.
