GOA: Even as the state’s Covid-19 death toll crossed the 500 mark, with its deaths per million being India’s highest, a demand for making an audit of Covid deaths public is now gaining ground in the medical fraternity. Doctors have also now stressed the need for an antibody sero-survey in the state, to determine the extent of prevalence of the infection in the population. These two exercises, doctors say, will help improvise the treatment regimen and thereby strategise a roadmap for better Covid-19 management.
Former IMA-Goa president Dr Anil Mehndiratta, said that a Covid death audit would help doctors treating and managing cases “to learn from our mistakes and save more lives.” “At least the medical fraternity should be informed about the details of each of such cases the age of the deceased, the co-morbid conditions they had, the results of his diagnostic tests, the viral markers, the line of treatment he was put on before he died, etc,” Mehndiratta told.
