The coronavirus situation has prompted wholesale societal changes at every level, leading many to proclaim that wearing masks, social distancing and avoiding face-to-face human contact should be the “new normal.”
But recently, stats directly from the CDC’s own website have contradicted the prevailing media-given numbers that make it seem as if all coronavirus-related deaths are caused directly by the virus, placing the number of deaths attributed only to the virus at a paltry 6%.
The other 94% had at least one, or multiple co-morbidities, casting doubt on whether COVID-19 should have been recorded as the cause.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media chorus has once again taken upon itself to “debunk” such theories, while lines in the sand are being drawn between those who believe the mainstream narrative and those who think the virus is being overblown.
Regardless of your opinion in this arena, it’s well worth knowing the growing list of inconsistencies, major hiccups, false positives, and other coronavirus testing snafus that have popped up in recent months.
One of the most glaring ones occurred recently in Memphis, Tennessee, as a son who lost his mother way back in February is now openly questioning the accuracy of the local health department following a laughingly incorrect COVID-19 test result that must be heard to be believed.
Woman Who Died in February Receives Positive COVID-19 test Result
According to a report from ABC Local 24 in Memphis, a Shelby County, Tennessee man is questioning the local health department after he received a letter saying his mother Sandra is COVID-19 positive, even though she passed away in February.
Troy Whittington said he was surprised upon opening the letter and knew it was false, saying that there was no testing being conducted at the time.
“I’m just having a hard time understanding how they can say someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive,” Whittington said about the letter, which told him his mother needed to isolate.
Sandra Whittington died on February 16, weeks before the first case of the disease was detected in Shelby County.
“It’s been 6 months, almost 7, since she passed away. There was no testing that was done at that time. On her death certificate it was stated she died, what the cause of death was, and it was not COVID-19. It was COPD,” he said according to the news station’s report.
Sandra had fought a long battle with COPD and was considered to be in Stage 4 when she died in hospice at the home of a friend.
When Troy called the health department, he was told his mother took a COVID test on June 20, which was impossible considering she had been cremated.
“I tried to call the health department this morning, ask them why this was going on. She said she would have to get a supervisor. She was sorry for the mistake or she couldn’t tell me any information till she got a supervisor, and I haven’t heard back from them.”
Whittington said the situation makes him question all COVID-19 test results, not just those of his mother. Several inaccuracies and false positives have been reported across the country recently, including in Fort Myers, Florida where one coronavirus testing lab initially reported entirely positive results, which they had actually been instructed to do by state officials before local whistleblowers realize what was going on and forced them to report negative test results as well.
In response to the Tennessee incident, the Shelby County Health Department issued the following response.
“Dr. Haushalter is reaching out to Mr. Whittington to apologize on behalf of the Health Department about the mistake and the additional pain it might have caused the family. She also states that new protocols will be put in place to make sure a mistake like this doesn’t happen again in the future.”
