India’s death toll from COVID-19 soars past 10,000-mark


New Delhi: After considering hundreds of deaths to be reviewed in Delhi and Maharashtra, the number of deaths due to coronavirus disease (Covid-19) in India soared to exceed the 10,000 mark on Tuesday. An increase of 437 and 1,409. The country added a total of 2006 deaths in Tuesday’s Kovid statistics-including 1,672 deaths and 11,135 infections.

The capital also recorded the highest number of deaths -93 within 24 hours. The city has currently recorded 44,688 infections, of which 1,837 died from the disease. Tuesday’s digital check reduced the city’s CFR to 4.1% from 3.3% a day.

A senior official from Delhi’s health department said the increase in deaths was due to the death committee’s efforts to browse all previous mail and increase the number of deaths in the past four days. The person, who asked not to be named, said: “Some deaths were caused by clerical and technical errors.”

The person familiar with the matter said that most of the backlog of deaths began in June, and there are still some to be determined.

In Maharashtra, the state recorded 81 cases throughout the day and its total death toll reached 5,537. There are already 113,445 cases in the state, and the new death toll has raised CFR from 3.7% a day ago to 4.9%.

Overall, India’s case fatality rate has increased from 2.9% to 3.4%, because the country has now killed 11,921 people from 354,161 infections.

The first 5,000 deaths took 80 days, while the most recent 5,000 deaths were within 17 days, and more than 2,500 people were reported to have died last week.

According to reports, on March 12, India died of Covid-19 for the first time. A 76-year-old man returned from Saudi Arabia to Kalberg in Karnataka, tested positive and died of the disease.
