They probably did test her - to say it wasn't it means you certain it was not that.

No it isn’t. Old people die of pneumonia all the time.
The mortality rate for old people with pneumonia is about 20% and it is considered the 3rd or 4th most common cause of death in the old. In the US alone, approximately 50,000 a year die of pneumonia, most of them elderly. 

it is perfectly reasonable to accept that an 86 year old woman died of pneumonia that was not Covid-19 related. 
 

No doubt some cases of Covid-19 will not be diagnosed, and will be put down to “ordinary” pneumonia. But there will also be a lot of people dying due to pneumonia that has nothing to do with Coronavirus, so speculating that a pneumonia death must really have been Covid-19, when the family says otherwise, does not make any sense. 

And then there's this, saying that current testing for Covid19 only has a 70% accuracy for negative tests.  Which would mean that 30% of the people that are told they don't have Covid19, actually do.  That's so high that it seriously undermines the value of the test at all.

That’s not quite what it means. It says that the tests in China gave 70% positive results, whereas 90% of the people SHOWED SYMPTOMS of Coronavirus. However with further testing, you cannot be certain that they actually had it. They could also have had another severe respiratory infection whose symptoms were similar to Coronavirus. 
I do agree though that testing with that level of accuracy is next to useless and is not much better than an educated guess.

Beside that, she had been suffering from a degenerative illness since at least 2009. Not so surprising she's gone.

You just need to let your inner warmth and compassion shine through. Then you won't need to ask for a friend, you will have many.
