Some say it is important to identify if someone died of Covid-19 or with Covid-19. What does that even mean exactly and how could that be identified? And should the result have any effect on the measures that are taken?

Forensic pathology has helped humans get deeper insights on any illness and how it ultimately affects the body up to death. It ultimately gives cause of death and helps in future cases. The coroner’s office only gets involved if the death is sudden, unexpected, or violent. So if someone dies at home, our deputies will be notified, ✔but again, if the decedent has a doctor who can certify that the death was from the coronavirus infection, then the decedent would not need an autopsy Its It's important to consider if a person dies with “flu-like” symptoms, then the sheriff-coroner’s office deputies ask questions at the death scene to establish if the patient traveled recently, and whether they were exposed to a known COVID-19 positive patient. 🔴“A nasopharyngeal swab can be done on the first day and if it comes back positive, we may be able to certify the death without an autopsy, > just based on the clinical history of respiratory distress and the positive viral test This illness affects everyone on different levels with different symptoms. Examples with CoVid have shown a link with increased cases of neurological symptoms like a stroke. Also, an added risk shown though studies is the corpses are proven contagious postmortem.
