The death toll from COVID-19 in India is estimated to be around 4.9 million

US Think Tank Report: The death toll from India’s COVID-19 is estimated to be around 4.9 million



The death toll from COVID-19 in India is estimated to be around 4.9 million.  [Global Times Comprehensive Report] The US think tank “Global Development Center” released a research report on the 20th, stating that the death toll from the COVID-19 in India is actually more than ten times the official figure, which is estimated to be around 4.9 million.

Reuters reported on the 20th that India’s official death toll exceeded 414,000, second only to 609,000 in the United States and 542,000 in Brazil. Many experts in the United States expressed doubts about this.

They believe that India may have missed the number of COVID-19 patients who died due to delays or interruption of treatment. The “Global Development Center” attempts to quantify the number of additional deaths caused by various causes based on confirmed data from various Indian states and international forecast data.

The study estimates that between January last year and June this year, the number of deaths from COVID-19 in India was 3.4 million to 4.7 million more than expected. According to the report, the real number may be millions, not hundreds of thousands, which may be the worst humanitarian tragedy since India’s independence.

In addition, the vaccination policy implemented by the Modi government has been widely criticized. Many people believe that the “chaotic” vaccination plan led to the second wave of outbreaks in India. According to data, the average daily dose of vaccination in India in July is less than 4 million, and only 8% of adults have received two doses of vaccine.
