A family from South Carolina is asking why the death certificate for their 79-year-old grandmother, Joan Hill, has her listed as dying from “COVID-19 complications” when they allege she never tested positive or showed symptoms of the disease.
The Blaze explains:
Upon receiving Hill’s death certificate, her family was shocked — it listed both Alzheimer’s disease and COVID-19 complications as the cause of death.
But that is not correct, the family told WIS. That’s because Hill never tested positive for coronavirus, nor did she ever exhibit symptoms of the virus.
“That was wrong. She had never been tested before or after death, so I wasn’t sure how that could even be listed on her death certificate,” Klosterman explained. “She was breathing fine; that was the last thing to go for her. Her lung function was good up until the very end, so there were zero symptoms of COVID whatsoever.”
When state health officials were asked if Jill was included in its COVID-19 totals, the state declined to answer citing privacy concerns.
