This material includes the Harris County Institute Of Forensic Sciences response to a Texas Public Information Act request for case records dating January 1, 2020, to May 1, 2020. Information sought in the request, filed by Matt Kiefer, includes details such as: date of death, race, ethnicity, age, gender, location; cause(s) of death.
There are fewer than 20 cases for which COVID-19 is listed as the primary cause of death in these document sets. Matt Kiefer noted this is at least in part because the state of Texas does not require coroners/medical examiners to investigate deaths caused by communicable diseases or public health threats.
