Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Independent found the same thing that Politico found two weeks ago:

While most countries are only counting confirmed deaths in hospitals, Belgium is including all potential deaths in nursing homes -- even if COVID-19 has not been confirmed as the cause of death.

Experts argue Belgium's approach is more transparent, and that other countries are underreporting the total numbers of deaths. But there's also growing political backlash that Belgium's count could be just as misleading, but in the opposite direction.

The challenge (or uselessness?) of International League Tables between different countries who use different counting methods.
