Woman’s death certificate lists COVID-19, but family says she was never tested

The death certificate of a 79-year-old South Carolina woman reportedly says COVID-19 complications contributed to her July death — but the decedent’s family claims she was never tested or infected with the virus.

Joan Hill died July 31 while receiving in-home hospice care at her daughter’s Richland County, Hill’s granddaughter, Kimberly Klosterman told WIS News.

Klosterman — who said Hill had for years suffered from dementia — told the station the family received Hill’s death certificate a week later, which listed Alzheimer’s disease and COVID-19 complications as the cause of death.

“That was wrong,” Klosterman said. “She had never been tested before or after death, so I wasn’t sure how that could even be listed on her death certificate.”
