Posted on 24th Jun 2022 10:47 am by rohit kumar

The prestigious medical journal The Lancet has made a big claim regarding the deaths due to corona in India. According to a study published in The Lancet Infectious Disease Journal, in the year 2021, the Kovid vaccine has been successful in preventing more than 42 lakh deaths in the country. The study is based on estimates of excess mortality in the country from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021. Let us inform you that WHO had estimated 47 lakh deaths in the country between January 2020 and December 2021.


At the same time, a global study found that more than 20 million lives have been saved worldwide due to the vaccine. Researchers found that in the first year of vaccination, 31.14 million possible deaths were prevented worldwide. These estimates have been released based on additional deaths in 185 countries.


Had WHO's target been met, it would have saved 6 lakh lives


The World Health Organization (WHO) had set a target to vaccinate 40% of the population of each country by the end of 2021. According to the study, if this target had been met, then 5 lakh 99 thousand 300 lives could have been saved worldwide. The study estimates the number of preventable deaths between December 8, 2020, and December 8, 2021. This was the first year of vaccine distribution.


Praised the country's vaccination campaign


Professor Oliver Watson, head of the Lancet study, told Imperial College London that according to our estimate for India, 42.10 lakh deaths were prevented. This is our central estimate, the uncertainty in this estimate is in the range of 36.65 lakhs to 43.70 lakhs. Watson said- This modeling study shows that the vaccination campaign in India has saved millions of lives.


The large population of India had to face problems due to the Delta variant. India's numbers are based on the estimate that 51.60 lakh (48.24 lakh to 56.29 lakh) deaths would have occurred in the country during the pandemic. This number is 10 times the official figure of 5 lakh 24 thousand 941 deaths recorded so far. Our studies are based on estimates of higher mortality rates in India during the pandemic, sourced from The Economist and WHO.


WHO had said – 47 lakh people became victims of the epidemic in India


According to The Economist's estimate, by the beginning of May 2021, 23 lakh people died of corona in India, while the official figures were around 2 lakh. At the same time, WHO released data from January 2020 to December 2021 last month and said that there were 47 lakh deaths due to corona in India. The WHO included both direct and indirect deaths in these deaths.


By that time these figures of WHO was a third of the world's deaths and were 10 times higher than the official figures. These figures were denied by the central government.
