Coronavirus: 50% more deaths being estimated in Telangana

Friday, August 14th, 2020, 02:11:00 AM IST


It is no secret that the government of Telangana is not handling the situation of Coronavirus in the best way possible. The way the government has been testing has been criticised by many.

While the testing and facilities fails have already come to light, there is yet another issue that’s bothering the state, that is yet to come to light.

The number of deaths that Telangana has reported so far is significantly lesser than the neighbouring state of Andhra Pradesh. Andhra Pradesh has reported over 2,000 deaths, whereas Telangana has reported just over 600 deaths.

Experts are now saying that this is because the government is hiding over 50% deaths, and is not categorising those deaths under Coronavirus induced deaths.

The reasons for this are very varied, including the disapproval of family members and lack of proper proofs. Regardless, fact remains that the number of deaths are 50% more than that is being made public knowledge.
