That’s not exactly a ringing endorsement for the “inaccuracies”Wrong.
You obviously did not read the article.
The headline says India may have had 10 times as many covid deaths than reported, but the article says many of those are suicides, malnutrition, or other deaths related to the panic, not the actual virus infection.
And the accuracy failure by the government was due to population dislocation and was more like only 20% off, not a factor of 10.
Dr. Aniket Sirohi, a municipal health official in south Delhi, told NPR he counted 702 deaths on a day in mid-April and passed those numbers up the chain of command. But the death figures the government has published for his region have been at least 20% lower than what he's seeing on the ground, he said.
