>>Coroner Coronavirus Bill Vetoed By Governor Tom Wolf
(Harrisburg, PA) -- Governor Tom Wolf is vetoing a bill aimed to require county coroners to investigate COVID-19 deaths. The bill would have doctors report the deaths related to the virus to county coroners, and they would investigate all those deaths and keep track of the data, instead of doctors directly reporting them to the Department of Health. Wolf says the current system works faster without county coroners, but some disagree, saying the system lags as it can take days or weeks before the deaths are reported and show up in the electronic systems. They added that it could be a problem when someone's had a contact, and coroners have not been notified and made sure that testing is done.
