Goa’s Covid-19 deaths is almost the national average

GOA:  Goa’s Covid-related deaths per million is almost four times the national average. With 304 deaths as on Monday, the state with a population of 15 lakh has seen 202 Covid deaths per million. The corresponding national figure is 55, as stated by Union health minister Harsh Vardhan in Parliament. This month, Goa has reported an average of seven deaths a day, completing over a hundred deaths in just 14 days. While the state ended August with the death toll at 195, the first two weeks of this month have seen 109 mortalities.

The state’s poor Covid management, which has drawn widespread criticism, is also evident from the government’s hurry to belatedly convert the South Goa district hospital to a Covid facility. While health minister Vishwajit Rane recently said beds at Covid hospitals are full, social media, too, is rife with photos of patients sleeping on the floor at Covid hospitals.
