Govt didn’t hide COVID death toll: CM

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government has not hidden COVID death figures in the state, asserted Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. He was addressing the assembly here on Thursday.

“ If there are any technical issues in recording COVID deaths, it will be resolved. The government will not take a stubborn stance over the matter,” said CM.

“ If differences are found in data reported from states and districts, we will crosscheck it. In India, two among three persons contracted COVID-19. But in Kerala. only below 50 percent of the total population tested COVID positive. The increase in TPR is not a major matter of concern, added Chief Minister as replying to the opposition.
