COVID official count missing 4 in 5 cases
Official COVID counts in Delhi-NCR are likely understated by 80 pct
It has never happened that 55% families have 1 or more experiencing 1 or more COVID symptoms in the months of April and May. And 2 in 3 of the residents did not even take a COVID test for various reasons. Of those who did take the test, 42% took home RAT. This makes 80% of the 100% out of the official counts
What all of this means is that there is a clear risk of illusion that comes from low daily cases reported. This risk is only aggravated as only 20% of the samples will now be available for genome testing making it a much longer process to identify newer variants and respond to a worsening situation in a timely manner.
