Govt dismisses as fallacious ‘the mis-informed media reports’ on Covid deaths

The Health Ministry has clarified that the approach to the Covid data management has been transparent and a robust system of recording Covid related deaths already existed.

The ministry said all states and union territories have been entrusted with the responsibility to update the data on a continuous basis.

The Ministry also dismissed as fallacious the mis-informed media reports on Covid deaths.

It said there have been some media reports alleging that atleast 27 to 33 lakh Covid deaths happened during the two waves of Covid-19 in the country.

The Ministry said India followed ICMR guidelines which are based on World Health Organization recommended ICD-10 codes for correct recording of all Covid-19 deaths.

It said states have been advised to conduct thorough audits in their hospitals and report any cases or deaths that could have been missed with a district and date-wise details so as to guide a data-driven decision-making.
