Expned: Why India reported 6,148 Covid deaths in a day - the highest ever
NEW DELHI: India on Thursday reported 6,148 Covid deaths in the last 24 hours. This is the highest daily death tally since the outbreak of the coronavir s pandemic.
However, the death tally was the highest-ever because it included Bihar's previously uncounted 3,951 deaths. If we discount Bihar's revised toll, a total of 2,197 deaths were reported in the last 24 hours.
Bihar on Wednesday drastically revised its Covid death toll upwards as the state's health department put the total number of fatalities caused by the pandemic at 9,429.
According to Bihar's health department, as many as 3,951 deaths were added to the toll after verification.
However, most of the 3,951 deaths happened during the second wave of the pandemic this year. The toll in Bihar was 5,424 till June 7 and 20 more Covid patients died in the past 24 hours.
Now, Bihar jumped from 17th to 12th position in Covid deaths among all states and UTs across the country. The additional figures increased the Covid-19 mortality in Bihar by around 42.1%.
As per the latest figures, mamum deaths were reported in Patna, taking the overall district toll to 2,303. Muzaffarpur reported 609 deaths, followed by Nnda (463), Begusarai (454), Purvi Champaran (425), Darbhanga (342) and Madhubani (317).
After Feku shed crocodile tears over the apocalyptic situation he created, we still passed another grim milestone. Although the number of deaths is already rming high but it is still far from accurate. If Bihar govt counts all the dead bodies floating down Mother Ganga from UP, the actual death toll will be at least 5x higher.
Still 10 times less reported.
How do you know sir...
There is a cabinet ministries who is responsible for data manipulation..so even if by mistake truth came out they can quickly manipulate and cover up.
Lol if actual deaths are reported then at peak it would have crossed hundred thousand on every day.
The Data is manipulated and we will see a sudden drop in deaths in 2 , 3 days.
Who cares for numbers now, when every bit of it is manipulated.
All figures are bogus and under reported
Even the bhakts know that the actual deaths are atleast 5 times more than numbers shown by govt. In UP it might even go up to 20 times or even more.
Clear example of data fudging. This is just tip of ice berg. Actual deaths and reported deaths have a wide gap. Its not only with Bihar but rest of the Indian states as well. Actual deaths are 10 times under reported and cases 5 times. I am a doctor and have highly confident of such under reporting.

Go to any particular village and do a little bit of survey and you can estimate the number of uncounted dead people in India. The number is 20-30times higher than go nment record.

If India give real factual data..the world will become come to shock.
No number from the govt is believable, all cooked up.
The actual death rate is still too high as people have no money to go to hospitol or even for buying medicines
What about Gujarat?? They have issued 70,000 death certificate in May month. But counted as 70 deaths per day. Ker too should reveal their actual number. Their difference is also huge one. All the states are expert at fudging numbers.
The Headline should have been “Why only Bihar has reported concealed deaths? Why not Gujarat, Karnataka, MP, and Uttarakhand ?”

Dont believe in numbers...be it case or death..it is 5 times what they r showing..central and all state gov r diahonest..
The deaths will increase more and more as PM Modi and BJP govt. now working hard to solve the unemployment problems in the country.
Jumla expert at number fudging.

When other BJP ruled states will will reveal actual number of deaths due to corona. .
