Per CDC, the number of Covid deaths in 2020 was about 375,000.That is an increase of 382,382 deaths (CDC numbers). Which is more than the reported number of CV deaths.

And keep in mind that while the number for actual deaths from all causes is firm, the number for expected deaths is an extrapolation from previous years adjusting for different parameters such as increase in population, etc.
I'm not a statistician, but 382,000 excess deaths vs 375,000 actual Covid deaths is very close, wouldn't you say?
It's within 1.9% of actual. I'd say that's pretty damn good for a model.
