In a shocking report published this week by researchers at Center for Global Development in Washington DC and Harvard University in Boston, it is reported that about 4.9 million people may have died from COVID-19 in India. According to the official death count from COVID-19 till date is only 4.1 million as can be seen on Indian Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MOHFW) website (www.mohfw.gov.in). In other words, Indian healthcare authorities have underreported COVID-19 deaths by a whopping 90%. International medical experts and top medical journals have long been indicated that Indian government has substantially underreported the number of people died from COVID-19. The results published by researchers this week have clearly demonstrated how shockingly Indian medical authorities have suppressed the pain, agony and death suffered by the ordinary Indians. PBT president, Dr. Kunal Saha, has sent a memorandum to the ICMR and MOHFW seeking clarification of the number of deaths due to COVID-19 in view of this latest revelation by the new study and said that PBT may move the court if ICMR and MOHFW do not provide a satisfactory response within 7 days (see the new research article below).
