India has 1 Covid death per lakh against world’s 6
NEW DELHI: India has one death per lakh population due to Covid-19 while the global average is more than six times at 6.04, the health ministry said on Tuesday, claiming that India had one of the lowest deaths per lakh population in the world due to timely detection of cases, extensive contact tracing and effective clinical management.
On June 2, India’s Covid-19 fatality per lakh population was 0.41, against 4.9 globally. Meanwhile, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) expanded the network of laboratories across the country to 1,000 to test for Covid-19. This includes 730 go nment labs and 270 in the private sector.
“This is an important milestone in the fight against coronavirus. Since the beginning, we have been focusing on 3Ts — testing, tracking and treating to fight the disease. Through increased testing, we are fighting this virus. Our goal was to establish a lab in every district of the country, which we have achieved to a large extent,” ICMR director general Dr Balram Bhargava said. The health ministry has recorded 14,011 deaths due to Covid-19 so far.
This includes 312 fatalities reported in 24 hours till 8 am on Tuesday, while 14,933 new cases took the total caseload to 4,40,215.
Citing the World Health Organisation’s latest situation report, the ministry said coronavirus-related fatalities per lakh population in the UK was 63.13, while it was 60.60 in Spain, 57.19 in Italy, 36.30 in the US, 27.32 in Germany, 23.68 in Brazil and 5.62 in Russia.
“This is also a testimony to the graded, pre-emptive and proactive approach taken by the go nment along with states/UTs for prevention, containment and management of Covid-19,” the ministry said. So far, 2,48,189 patients have recovered from the disease, taking the recovery rate to 56.38%. There were 1,78,014 active cases.
Another way of fooling people with new statical number to show that this BJP go nment is doing good job. Feku kahinka. People know the truth.
I am sure pappu would have done better. He is so learned and experienced.
Thats cos we have the lowest testing numbers when compared to other countries. Hence the number of deaths will also be less. Noting to be proud of.
How are deaths related to testing???
Why are we breeding this much statistics???
because we dont have any other way to keep the positive vibe.. if you have any cure then we may not need to depend on all such stats.
Because the testing is very low and India is the most populus country in the world.
Why dont you compare this data with china who are having the same population as india.
China roughly crossed 90K Covid cases whereas Dehli or mumbai alone has reached that mark that of china..
By that logic out of 4.5 lac infected people only 4 or 4 would have died. Don't understand how they have calculated.
when the base is 140 crores then the number will show less .........
Stop creating all these nonsense statistics. End of day people are dying and number of positive cases are increasing rapidly.

The Larger the denominator, the smaller will be the ratio. Simple math. According to this logic, the solution or way to decrease the death per population will be increase the population by more breeding.
A death is a death. Every life matters. Please stop making analysis on the rate of death to reflect the performance of the govt. Shameless.
Dr. Nirmal Kumar Mahakud
Do not be in a hurry to give this type of conclusion. Time will come in next 2 months. the equation will change.
Malnourishment among children and widespread co-morbidities among the elderly make Indians PARTICULARLY vulnerable. Time to stop BRAGGING and do what is best possible to limit the casualties as healthcare infrastructure is woefully inadequate.
Nowhere covid guidelines are followed.
Please also tell number of test being done per million and how they compared to other countries.
instead of doling out useless statistics, the Government should introspect the areas in which it bungled and take corrective action. There does not appear to be any proactive strategy.
If the actual count of death is taken without hiding any cased, then it would be at least 10 death per lakh for sure
It wud b nearly 0 if we were 5 billion....wt a foolish analysis....
Premguru Ki Ashirvaad
now India can boast about the best healthcare system in the world under a great prime minister.
Corona increasing UNCHECKED in India, while things are gradually coming under CONTROL elsewhere. So this comparison is meaningless and premature.

so we conclude India's health care system is best in the world
