More people have died of coronavirus in Karnataka than in neighboring Kerala primarily due to underlying illnesses—or comorbidity—and the age of patients, an audit panel, appointed by the Karnataka government to study Covid-19 deaths in the state, has found.

The death audit, being done by a special task force of 10 specialist doctors, has analysed 17 of 30 deaths that have occurred in the state due to coronavirus. They studied symptoms of the patients, time of their hospitalisation, comorbidity (or underlying illnesses) involved, treatment adopted and the nature of death.
