‘We’re being kept in the dark, and so is the public’ Coroners voice concerns over limited info on Covid-19 deaths

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ)–During the Covid-19 pandemic, there’s concern from some in Pennsylvania that not enough information on coronavirus deaths is being relayed to the public.

Currently, there are no requirements from PA’s Department of Health (DOH) to publish specific facts related to Covid-19 deaths. Information not being published includes: the location of the patient’s death and how long they were at this location before passing.

Most PA officials agree that most detailed information on the death should be withheld for the patient’s privacy. However, many members of the public feel basic information (of public concern) should be released.

Normally, county coroners pass-along this information to the public (age, gender, and location of patient death), but coroners say they’re being kept in the dark. They say since they’re not receiving this information, neither is the public.

“It’s very frustrating because it gets reported and people call the coroner’s office wanting to know information and details… and we don’t have any knowledge of it. It looks like we don’t know what’s going on in the county, but we’re trying to keep on top of it,” said Centre County Coroner, Scott Sayers.
