Natasha Ott, a 39-year-old woman, died alone in her kitchen awaiting results from a COVID-19 test.
Natasha Ott, a 39-year-old woman who had symptoms of COVID-19, died alone in her kitchen on Friday, her boyfriend said in a viral Facebook post.
Ott, who worked at a New Orleans clinic for people with HIV, declined a test for COVID-19 because her facility only had five available.
Eventually, Ott tested negative for the flu and used one of the tests from her job, but she told her boyfriend the results were delayed, he said.
Ott, who a relative said was otherwise healthy, had not yet received the results before her boyfriend found her dead on the floor in her kitchen.
