Alleged document says it’s ‘appropriate’ to link cause of death to coronavirus despite victim never being tested.
A Minnesota official is raising alarm that he’s been told it’s ‘appropriate’ to put on people’s death certificate that they died of COVID-19, despite the victim never being tested for it.
Scott Jensen, a Republican member of the state’s senate and also a physician, told local media he got the message from the Minnesota Department of Health, according to a surfaced Instagram video.
Twitter mirror of interview:
“Last Friday I received a seven-page document that sort of told me that if I have an 86-year-old patient that had pneumonia but was never tested for COVID-19,” said Jensen. “But sometime after, she came down with pneumonia, we learn she had been exposed to her son (who had no symptoms but later on was diagnosed with COVID-19) it would be appropriate to diagnose on the [86-year-old’s] death certificate ‘COVID-19.’” said Jensen.
Jensen assured the interviewer he would do no such thing.
“Now, we have not done that,” said Jensen. “If someone has pneumonia in the middle of a flu epidemic, and I don’t have a test on influenza, I don’t diagnose influenza on the death certificate.”
“I will say, ‘this elderly patient died of pneumonia.’”
Jensen added that a colleague of his confirmed the practice was unprecedented for their field.
“We’ve always been told you always put down just facts [on death certificates], you don’t put down any probabilities, you don’t put any presumptions down.”
When asked to speculate why officials would want to skew the deaths related to COVID-19, Jensen said:
“Well, fear is a great way to control people, and I worry about that.”
