Son says mom’s death from cancer labeled ‘Covid’ on death certificate

Kevin tells the Dori Monson Show on KIRO Radio that his mother passed away on March 24. She was battling stage-4 pancreatic cancer. She took a turn for the worse while in the hospital for two weeks.

Kevin is frustrated because COVID-19 is listed as one of the causes of death on his mother’s death certificate.

“Two days before she went, they said that she had contracted Covid,” Kevin said. “It’s not right.”

Dori said if the state wants to control us with phases and inflated numbers, it’s just wrong.

Kevin said he lives in Pierce County, which was rolled back to Phase 2 on April 16 due to not meeting the state’s metrics.

In order to remain in Phase 3, large counties need to have 200 or fewer new cases per 100,000 residents over two weeks and five or fewer hospitalizations per 100,000 residents over the past week. Counties with a population under 50,000 need to have 100 or fewer total new cases over two weeks and three or fewer hospitalizations over the past week.

At the time, Pierce County had a rate of 267.9 new cases and 6.4 hospitalizations.

“They’re using it as a Covid death to get the extra money and to keep us locked down,” Kevin told Dori.
