Latest Developments

  • The NCDHHS sent guidance to county health offices advising them to not share death records with journalists who requested them.
    • The guidance was discovered after journalists across the state requested death records during late March and early April to try and gain an understanding of COVID-19 deaths.
    • What this shows us is that it’s hard to get a full picture of the COVID-19-related deaths.
