- According to the data of all the three MCDs, Delhi has never recorded so many deaths before.
- There were more death registrations in April this year as compared to last year.
- Excess in death registration due to second wave of corona infection
The death registration reports prepared by North, South and East MCDs last year and this year are astonishing. The death toll in April and May this year is not 50 or 100 percent higher than last year, but much higher. In April last year, 4,441 death registrations were done in all the three MCDs. This year till this period 10,750 deaths have been registered. In May last year, 5,475 deaths have been registered and till May 31 this year, 24,000 deaths have been registered. That is, the death toll in May this year is more than 4 times as compared to last year.
death registration more due to corona infection
According to North MCD Mayor Jai Prakash, there is an increase in the number of death registrations every year, but not accordingly. If we compare the death registration reports of the last few years, there is an increase of 4 or 5 percent. But, this year’s report has broken records of decades. The main reason for this is the rapidly spreading corona infection in Delhi. There will hardly be any such house in Delhi, which has been left untouched by corona infection. So the death toll was high. In April last year, there were 4,441 death registrations in all the three MCDs. In April this year, the death registration report of 10,750 people has been prepared. That is, the death registration in April this year is 142 percent (2.4 times) more than last year. In May last year, 5,475 deaths were registered. In May this year, the figure is 24,000. That is, the death registration is about 4 times more than last year.
Precautions still needed
According to MCD officials, the cases of infection have come down significantly due to the lockdown. At the end of last month, where 700 Kovid deadbodies were being cremated in one day in crematoriums, now less than 50 deadbodies are being cremated daily. Don’t give up on seeing fewer cases. The infection can be relieved only by taking precautions. People will have to strictly follow the guidelines set to prevent corona infection.
