Last week the liberal media ran screaming headlines after 39-year-old Natasha Ott was found dead on her kitchen floor while awaiting her coronavirus test results. Of course, the left ran with the story as a way to whip up panic and attack the Trump administration.
Now, a second coronavirus test came back with negative results, the Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office said Friday. The media reported incorrectly that she died of coronavirus while waiting for her test results.
Ott’s death drew public notice when her boyfriend, Josh Anderson, wrote in a widely shared social media post that he had found her dead March 20 in her kitchen. Anderson recounted that an ailing Ott, after testing negative for the flu, had been tested for COVID-19 — the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the virus — but died before getting the results back.
Furthermore, it was not revealed that she was in fact suffering for the last two years from an undiagnosed intestinal condition but her boyfriend said she was perfectly healthy.
The media reported incorrectly that she died of Corona-9 while waiting for her test results.
Anderson said he had gotten text messages from Ott in the days before she died that described a series of persistent symptoms consistent with the virus.
But after her death, the first test result came back and showed that coronavirus “was not detected,” Ott’s sister, Emily Coalson Stamets, wrote Thursday on Facebook.
Stamets said the doctor who tested Ott “was incredulous” and immediately asked the commercial testing company LabCorp to retest Ott’s specimen. Stamets said the Coroner’s Office also sent in a specimen from Ott to be tested at a local university that Stamets did not identify.
Those results were in by Wednesday and again indicated that no coronavirus was detected, Stamets said.
The exact reason the woman, Natasha Ott, died remains under investigation by the Coroner’s Office, spokesman Jason Melancon said. Such investigations can take several weeks to complete.
