Kvadia: The 14th Central Council Conference of State Health Ministers kicked off last Thursday in Kevadia, Gujarat. The meeting was chaired by Union Health Minister Manzuk Mandavia.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has strongly condemned the report, saying that the corona could have killed 47 lakh people in India. This report is unsubstantiated. The health ministers said the aim of the report was to underestimate India.
They said deaths and corona deaths are being registered in the states in a formal and transparent manner following legal provisions.
State health ministers passed a resolution yesterday condemning the World Health Organization report.
Karnataka Health Minister Sudhakar said, “The method adopted by the World Health Organization on corona mortality assessment in India is an attempt to tarnish India’s image.
They urged Union Health Minister Mansuk Mandavia that India should express its dissatisfaction with the World Health Organization in this regard.
We have a strong, transparent data collection system to track corona deaths. This is an attempt to tarnish the image of India for its excellent management of the corona. ”
Punjab Health Minister Vijay Singla said, “The World Health Organization’s corona death estimate is imaginary. India has a strong data collection system. There is no reason to doubt this. ”
Madhya Pradesh Health Minister Vishwas Sarang said, “There is a conspiracy to underestimate India’s achievements in the corona case. Corona mortality rate is low in the country and vaccination is high. All state health ministers have rejected the World Health Organization report. ”
Similarly, Sikkim Health Minister MK Sharma and Bihar Minister Mangal Pandey said the method followed by the World Health Organization was not scientific.
The Ministry of Health said:
India will raise this issue at the World Health Organization meeting and other international organizations. Despite India’s opposition to the World Health Organization’s approach to estimating corona deaths, it has released an additional corona mortality estimate.
State Governments in India must respect and accept the strong and accurate information legally generated by the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization should not trust inaccurate information from private organizations.
