Do you think your loved one died from COVID-19?
A variety of medical conditions have similar symptoms to COVID-19. Many individuals that die with COVID-19 have underlying medical conditions that may be felt to be the more likely cause of death, particularly if testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus has not been performed. Final Diagnosis Inc. will soon be providing molecular testing to allow for such diagnoses when uncertainty exists. It is our intention to not perform autopsies if in fact the COVID-19 test is positive. In such instances we may be able to arrive at a probable cause of death in light of the known positive COVID-19 test. If the test is negative, at the families discretion, we may then be able to proceed with a complete autopsy.
