I just added a death event. The person's death record says she was nine hours old. Her birth record was already on the database. The events were the same day, and it lists the death before the birth. Allowing the time of day to be included would help, but not much, because the hour of the events might not be available, but the order might still be known.

Use the "sort date" feature on the edit person screen to establish a date one day after the birth event.

Or in SortDate add a suffix serial number to order same day events, e.g., "14 Apr 2019-1".
