- According to the Karnataka government, 1,422 people died of corona in Bengaluru from March 1 to April 26.

Deaths from the corona in Bengaluru, Karnataka, and the funeral pyre burning in the crematorium are questioning government figures. According to the Karnataka government, from March 1 to April 26, 1,422 people died due to corona
This is when Christian and Muslim cemeteries have not been included, with smaller cremations falling under the Bengaluru Municipality Corporation (BBMP) due to lack of data. Cremation home staff say most kovid victims are being cremated, while corona-infected bodies are required to be buried in deep pits.
According to this, if 10 to 12 percent (310-465) cremations performed under the Kovid Protocol are for those whose test results are yet to come, then there will be a difference of 100 percent between the actual number and the official figures.
Officials believe that there is a difference in figures
BBMP Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta says, “I don’t have the exact number of this difference but we know that the gap has definitely happened.” But because the matter is very sensitive, we are not sending back the dead bodies coming from the neighboring districts.
BBMP’s Joint Commissioner Sarfaraz Khan says, “Cremation grounds are also being cremated from other districts and the ILI / SARI case is being cremated. This means cases in which the COVID report is negative but the CT scan has symptoms of COVID. These are not included in the government database. The difference can be due to this only.
