Dead Woman Receives A Letter Saying She Has COVID-19 And Needs So Self Isolate


A woman who’s been dead six months received a letter this week from the Shelby County Health Department saying that she had tested positive for COVID-19 and needs to isolate.

“I’m just having a hard time understanding how they can say someone has COVID-19 when they are not even alive,” said Troy Whittington.

“It’s impossible for someone to be tested on June 20, who passed away on February 16th,” said Whittington. “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 a letter arrived from the Shelby County Health Department for his mother, Sandra Whittington. The letter says she has been diagnosed as COVID positive and needed to isolate.

That would be difficult, according to her obituary: the 66-year-old died February 16th. That was weeks before the first case of COVID-19 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,” said Whittington.

The Millington resident said his mom fought a long battle with COPD and was considered in stage 4 when she died in hospice at the home of a friend.

Whittington said when he called the health department, he was told she took a COVID-19 test June 20th, which was clearly impossible. She was cremated. More

Imagine your mother has been dead for 6 months but she gets a letter saying she has been diagnosed with COVID 19 from a test that was supposedly taken in June ? Hear from her son tonight at 6!

Did someone steal Sandra Whittington’s identity? Better check to see if “she” requested an absentee ballot too! I betcha she’ll vote for Biden/Harris come November.
