Mangal Pandey, Bihar’s health minister, said on Thursday that the administration has been working on updating the Covid-19 death toll for the past few weeks after learning from multiple sources that the toll may be higher.
The state’s Covid-19 toll has increased by 72.8 percent as a result of the modification process. Private hospitals and residences have been blamed for the deaths. The study was developed in the last 15-20 days, according to the health minister, and was revealed on Tuesday. The government, on the other hand, has not specified when these fatalities may have occurred.
“These deaths occurred 15 days ago, but the information was only recently added to the official web. Some private hospitals will be targeted for action “Reuters received a statement from a government official. Bihar’s Covid-19 death toll nearly doubled after the revision, from 5,458 to 9,429.
After review, the death toll in about 38 districts changed. The death toll has risen by more than 200 percent in Kaimur, Saharsa, Begusarai, and East Champaran. While Munger was the only district with no increase, no district reported any decrease in the toll after the revision.
