Coronavirus numbers explained

States non-transparent with tally

States non-transparent with tally

Earlier this month, a big discrepancy was noticed in the death numbers being put out by the Delhi government and the information available from the hospitals. After an initial attempt to explain the discrepancy as a result of the information gap between the different agencies, Delhi has been adjusting the previously unaccounted deaths in its tally. But Delhi is not the only state which has been less than transparent in reporting COVID-19 numbers. Almost every other state has seemed reluctant in sharing information, especially those relating to the dead. Only three states, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala, routinely provide details of death cases in their states.
