Statewide death data report released

In the continuing effort to collect, maintain and publish the most useful data available to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has published a new death data report that includes different categories of COVID-19 deaths.

To determine whether COVID-19 contributed to a person’s death, DOH uses death certificates, COVID-19 testing results, case/contact investigation information, follow-up with medical certifiers and information from local public health jurisdictions.

Determining whether COVID-19 caused or contributed to a person’s death can be a complex process that may take weeks to verify. It may take up to a year to finalize COVID-19 death counts.
