Jharkhand door-to-door survey: April-May deaths up 43% from 2 years ago

AN INTENSIVE Public Health Survey (IPHS) survey in Jharkhand — the first such door-to-door counting of deaths by any state during the second wave of the pandemic — has revealed that 25,490 people died in the state during April-May 2021. This is 43 per cent higher than 17,819 total deaths officially registered across all 24 districts in April-May 2019 as per the Directorate of Economics and Statistics in the state’s Planning Department.

BJP leaders attack Hemant Soren over PM jibe, Jagan calls for unity to fight Covid

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren Thursday termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s phone call on the Covid-19 situation as PM’s “Mann Ki Baat” instead of any “Kaam ki baat” — a comment that did not go down well with BJP leaders who accused him of “politicising” the Covid pandemic. His Andhra Pradesh counterpart Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, too, urged Soren that it is not the time to point fingers but work unitedly and fight the pandemic. Modi had on Thursday spoken to the chief ministers of Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and Telangana besides Jharkhand about the COVID-19 situation in their states. Following the telephonic conversation, Soren, taking a dig at the PM, tweeted: “Today the respected Prime Minister called. He only spoke his ‘Mann Ki Baat’. It would have been better if ...
