El forense de Missouri admite haber omitido COVID-19 como causa de muerte cuando otros factores involucrados

El forense Brian Hayes omitió el COVID-19 como la causa de muerte en al menos seis certificados de defunción de residentes fallecidos de su condado rural que padecían otras afecciones., el dijo The Kansas City Star in an interview published Thursday, giving examples of an elderly patient with pneumonia or “sabes, grandma had one lung and smoked all her life.

A lot of families were upset. They didn’t want COVID on the death certificates,” Hayes told the outlet. “I won’t lie for them, it’s gotta be true, but I do what pleases the family.

As a result of him allowing families to omit COVID as the cause of death, the number of official coronavirus deaths in Macon County changed from 30 or more to 19, the Star reported, citing state and local estimates.

There are always numerous factors that are considered when making decisions on these fronts,” Missouri Department of Health Lisa Cox said in a statement to Fox News regarding Hayesactions. “Missouri has worked to balance the need for updating information, protocolos, and definitions across a spectrum of COVID-related impacts while also working to mitigate confusion and further skepticism of public health messaging and information.
