When death from coronavirus is a matter of interpretation
by Tom Avril, Updated: April 1, 2020
Asked why Italy had a high rate of deaths due to the coronavirus, government officials there said it was because they were using a broader definition for such deaths than other countries, counting any victims who had tested positive even if other illnesses were at fault.
In Illinois, officials announced last weekend that an infant died after testing positive for the virus, but said they were still determining the cause of death. And in Florida, two deaths were listed as virus-related in mid-March, then later removed from the official count.
Incomplete data and inconsistencies come as no surprise to medical examiners, coroners, and physicians who fill out death certificates for a living. Even under normal circumstances, determining the cause of death is an inexact science. With the surge in deaths from a cause no one had heard of three months ago, ironclad certainty may, for now, be even more elusive.
“I think that across the country, you’re going to see different interpretations,” said Meredith J. Buck, the coroner in Bucks County. “People are trying to standardize something that has no precedent.”
Ultimately, the results will be crucial in helping researchers determine the virus’ deadliness. In the United States, 2% of identified patients had died as of March 31, according to figures compiled by Johns Hopkins University. But epidemiologists predict the true percentage will turn out to be lower
In Florida, where two deaths were listed as virus-related then unlisted, officials blamed the shift on errors in data entry. In Illinois, where the infant died after testing positive for the coronavirus, health officials said the death remained under investigation.
I do not know the answer, I do believe is this should have never shut down the world, It is a weaponized virus turned loose on the world with the main objective to take down America and its president and set the stage for the NEW WORLD ORDER.
THAT’S JUST MY OPINION, WHAT’S YOURS?
