HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — State Senator Judy Ward introduced a bill that she says will lead to a better picture of what’s happening during a pandemic.
Her bill calls for County Coroners to be notified each time there’s a new diagnosis or death. The coroners would then investigate all deaths reported to be a part of the pandemic. The goal is more accuracy and less confusion.
“Differing numbers throw a wrench into every community’s efforts to plan for this emergency and other future ones,” Ward said.
A similar bill was vetoed by Governor Wolf during the last legislative session.
