Changes in death data in the health district;  a new fatality revealed in Danville |  Local News

With death certificates, a family member may notice an error prompting a change to a place of residence, the health department previously explained. Based on demographic data, it appears one death was logged for Pittsylvania County instead of Danville. That has been the case with COVID-19 reported infections. The health department’s goal is to classify cases and deaths by a person’s official place of residence. Sometimes ZIP code are found to be the culprit with misaligned figures. One new death was added to the district’s toll on Wednesday morning, based on information the health department received by 5 p.m. Tuesday. The demographic information indicates a Danville woman 80 or older became the latest of 203 virus victims in Danville and Pittsylvania County. More than half of the local COVID-19 deaths occurred in residents 80 or older.

On Wednesday morning, the Virginia Department of Health revealed two new deaths of Danville residents blamed on the illness caused by the novel coronavirus. At the same time, one death was removed from the Pittsylvania County column. The COVID-19 data shift continues in the Pittsylvania-Danville Health District.

The health department didn’t respond to questions from the Register & Bee on the changes, but two spokespersons in the region were out of the office Wednesday.
