A Shelby County man asks what’s going on at the Shelby County Health Department.
Your son, Troy Whittington, told 11 News He was shocked when he received the letter. He knew what was in that letter was false.
“I just have a hard time understanding how they can tell that someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive,” Whittington said.
According to the aforementioned outlet, Whittington said a letter arrived from the Shelby County Health Department for her mother, Sandra Whittington. The letter says that you were diagnosed with COVID positive and needed to isolate yourself.
That would be difficult, according to her obituary: The 66-year-old died on February 16. That was weeks before the first COVID-19 case was detected in Shelby County.
“It has been 6 months, almost 7, since he passed away. No tests were done at that time. His death certificate said that he died, what was the cause of death and it was not COVID-19. It was COPD Whittington said.
When he called the health department to ask for an explanation, they told him that the mother underwent a COVID-19 test on June 20, which was clearly impossible. It had been cremated for months.
This event makes Whittington question not only the COVID 19 statistics in his area, but also the statistics of the entire country, according to what he says and tells from the aforementioned medium.
“I would like the health department to be more precise,” he added: “They have a record of his death there. From there I obtained the death certificate and it is in the same building from which they sent the letter informing that it is positive, which is not possible ”.
Whittington would also like to point out, if your mother had been alive and supposedly tested in June and tested positive, why did it take so long for the notification to come out?
“We are talking two months later. If a person tests positive, they need to be quarantined for about 14 days. There is no point in giving notice 60 days after the test. It’s unacceptable, ”Whittington said.
