If the study conducted by researchers from the University of Toronto, CVoter, IIM Ahmedabad, Dartmouth College, and Development Data Lab are to be believed, the COVID deaths in Telangana and particularly Hyderabad during the COVID second wave were grossly underreported. 


The study revealed that the number of deaths in Hyderabad during the peak months of the second wave (April-May 2021) was 130 percent more than the figures reported during the corresponding period of previous years (2015-19). Incidentally, the number of deaths during the first wave (June- December 2020) is only 56 percent more than the previous years’ figures.


That means the underreporting is much more in the second wave. Also, it says the COVID second wave is much more intense than the first wave and costed more lives. The findings were reported in a pre-print paper titled, ‘Excess mortality in India from June 2020 to June 2021 during the Covid pandemic: death registration, health facility deaths, and survey data.


The scenario is similar for the country as a whole. The study estimates that the actual deaths in India maybe about seven to eight times higher than the official figures. They put the total COVID deaths in the country between 27 Lakh to 33 Lakh. With a majority of them in the second wave.
