Keywords:Covid 19, Natural death, verbal autopsy
The Covid 19 pandemic brought about many changes. People were stressed, also they didn’t get treatment
on time. Because of this there was worsening of pre-existing disease. There was also increase in stress
related diseases like myocardial ischemia. Lockdown and sudden change of plans also affected the treatment
of cases. Some cases could also be due to undiagnosed Covid infection, since there is no test that is 100%
sensitive and specific to detection of the virus1 especially during the post-mortem period. Here we are
discussing some selected cases which we have come during the period and the autopsy findings thereof. This
article highlights the importance of negating fear and increase awareness. It also conveys the significance of
verbal autopsy as a tool to help certify death.
