Has anyone got sick or has passed away by regular diagnoses but the hospital and/or paper automatically says it was COVID that caused the death?

My grandfather had a heart attack, and he was not sick at all before he seemed to be rather healthy considering the heart problem but the hospital diagnosed his death being caused by COVID. He had already passed away in his own home before arriving at the hospital.
