It's really sad to read what is happening in India and to realise that the reality is very likely to be much worse.

"The gruesome discovery on the banks of the Ganges is the latest in the humanitarian crisis unfolding in India - the point of origin of a strain of coronavirus the WHO has labelled a global concern"

There is a research report out examining excess deaths against covid deaths  across the world. As you might expect, some countries declared covid deaths are very close to the reality, but there are other countries where declared covid deaths are not 10% of the real number.

The study shows that there are a lot of countries that are not reporting their covid deaths accurately.

And that in some countries, the number of covid deaths is as much as 10 times greater than reported.

India would be a perfect example of under-reported deaths.

Just the logistics of keeping any accurate data on a population that size is impossible.

I think the Indian Civil Service will be able to record the deaths but the numbers are so overwhelming that cause of death will be ignored.

Mucormycosis,

Yes, I posted about mucormycosis in another forum a couple of days ago. It's the last thing coronavirus sufferers in India needed.
