47 million deaths in India due to corona. 'Foreign report' is also true for Rahul Gandhi.

New Delhi: Indian experts have expressed displeasure over the World Health Organization's (WHO) report on deaths due to coronavirus in India. He has also questioned the way who calculates, expressing disappointment over the "same policy for all". The WHO claimed in its report that around 15 million people have lost their lives across the world in two years. In India, 47 lakh people died due to the infection.  Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi has considered the WHO's report to be true and has targeted the Modi government by weaponizing it.

At the same time, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Director-General Dr. Balram Bhargava, NITI Aayog member V K Paul and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Director Dr. Randeep Guleria have objected to the WHO report. At the same time, experts have termed it as unfortunate. At the same time, Icmr Director-General Dr. Bhargava has said that "When we were getting deaths due to corona infection, we did not have the definition of deaths. Even the WHO didn't have that definition. If someone gets infected today and dies two weeks later, will he die of Covid? Or if the death of an infected person is 2 months or 6 months later, will it be counted as death from Covid?" Dr. Bhargava said, "For this definition, we looked at the entire data and came to the conclusion that 95 percent of the deaths occurred in the first 4 weeks after being found infected in the corona test. In such a situation, a cut-off of 30 days was kept for the definition of death. '

Dr. Bhargava said, "We have such a large amount of data. We have data of 97-98 percent of the 1.3 billion doses taken by the first dose and about 190 crore vaccine doses have been used. It's all been arranged in an orderly manner. Once we have systematic data, we don't need to take modeling, extrapolations, and press reports and use them in modeling. At the same time, AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria also objected to the report, saying that there is a very strong system of birth and death registration in India and those figures are available, but the WHO has not used those figures at all.

Niti Aayog member V K Paul rejected the WHO report, saying That India has been telling the global body with all humility and through diplomatic channels, with statistics and rational arguments, that it does not agree with the methodology adopted for its country. "Now that the actual number of deaths of more than all causes is available, there is no justification for using just modeling-based estimates.

Paul further said, "Unfortunately, despite our constant writing, and communication at the ministerial level, they have chosen to use numbers based on modeling and assumptions. He said that for a country of huge size like India, such notions are to be used and "do not agree with presenting us in a bad way". N K Arora, chairman of the National Immunisation Technical Consultative Group (NTAGI), termed the report as "extremely unfortunate" and said India's mortality rate (per million) is the lowest compared to many developed countries.
