New Delhi: Death within 30 days with covid is considered to be due to covid. The Central Government has informed the Supreme Court that it has set new standards in calculating Covid deaths. The government told the apex court that the standards, jointly formulated by the central government and the Medical Research Council of India, were issued on September 3. According to the revised criteria, if a patient dies within 30 days of being caught covid, it will be added to the list of covid deaths. If the patient dies in the hospital or at an outpatient center, it is no longer considered a covid death.
The covid test can be performed to determine if the patient is covid or not by a doctor-supervised test.
But if a person dies due to suicide, homicide or accidents, even if he had covid, it cannot be listed as covid deaths. If there is any complaint in the death certificate, the relatives of the deceased can approach the grievance redressal cell formed on a district basis.
