No, it does not seem right according to mostly everything I've read about this in and outside the USA. As for the USA, excess deaths tracked by CDC show the 2020 Covid head count impact that seem to correlate with published figures, it may even suggest that Covid 19 was under-reported. Look at the graph further down re weekly excess deaths.

So, you are saying that death rates prior to 2020 were under reported or the expectation prior to 2020 was that death rates for heart disease, etc. would be going down in 2020? I don't see any other alternatives.

Uhmm, no, I am saying the CDC data does not show anything suspicious, or worth further explanation, about the excess deaths that Covid 19 has added along with the normal trend.

PS. Just to clarify, I was therefore disputing the gist of the article that you linked in the OP.
