Recently, the Government of India has released the death toll due to Corona. Although the WHO is saying something else. There is a stark difference between the figures of the Ministry of Health and the figures of those who died of COVID released by the WHO. WHO says that between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2021, 47 lakh people died.
The WHO says that due to the corona epidemic, more than 15 million people died worldwide and India’s figure is one third of the deaths of the whole world. The WHO says that the worldwide death toll has not been accurately counted. About 10 times more people have died than what has been counted in India.
Let us tell you that the method by which WHO has given this assessment is called access death. In this method, based on the mortality rate of the area battling the epidemic, it is estimated that how many people would have died.
The Director General of the WHO said, this figure not only tells about the impact of the epidemic but countries should learn from it that they should improve their health systems. In times of crisis, only good health facilities can save humanity. In the period in which the WHO has estimated 47 lakh deaths, the government figures claim only 5.2 lakh deaths.
WHO figures show that as of August 2020, while the strict lockdown was in place, deaths were decreasing. During this 62 thousand people died. The death toll started increasing rapidly from September and the first wave of corona in many states created an outcry. This wave peaked in April, May and June and by then 27 lakh people had died.
The WHO has made this assessment according to the data of access death. It means that how many people died compared to the normal number of deaths. Accordingly, it is estimated that how many people would have died due to the epidemic.
