Mangaluru: Deaths exclusively due to coronavirus in district were 17

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Mar 30: Dakshina Kannada district had become notorious for the increase of coronavirus infections and related deaths last year. However, it now transpires that only 17 had died in the district exclusively on account of coronavirus infection.

During the year after corona entered the district, the total number of deaths stands at 742. A team of doctors have conducted death audit and analysed the result. Covid-related deaths have also been segregated. As per the details, 17 deaths occurred due to coronavirus, 188  were coincidental deaths, 533 associated deaths, two were non-covid deaths, one post covid death and one home isolation death. 

Coincidental deaths are those in which people suffering from coronavirus die because of other causes. For example, they would have died due to an accident. Associated relates to comorbidities or people already having other health complications like diabetes, heart ailments, high blood pressure etc. 

Out of 742 deaths, 520 were men and the balance 222 were women. As is observed universally, here too, death rate is high among those aged over 40.

One person who had recovered after covid treatment had died when being taken to hospital after he suffered heart attack. This is considered as home isolation death.

This year, the cases have been minimal. In January, three deaths occurred, one in Febrary and two in March till now due to coronavirus infection. 

In Udupli district, out of 190 corona-related deaths, four had died purely on account of coronavirus. Out of the deaths, 139 were men and 51 women.

    It must be noted that most people who contracted COVID and could get good medical attention at the right time, survived. Thus I assume that this number of 17 too may not be presenting the correct picture. It is no secret and nothing new that those who cannot afford rarely get access to the best facilities.

    Exactly, only 10% of US deaths were with Covid, but not DUE TO COVID, The offer is still open for every one to prove People Died Due to Covid, 2 & 1/2 million dollars still can be grabbed by any Pundits here or anywhere in the world who want to shut down the whole country after being scared by paid media. Bill wanted to bring down Trump by using this pandemic, he succeeded by dumping fake postal ballots as Trump was against compulsory vaccines as he knew they don't work but rather would cause harm in previous vaccines, he wanted people to have a Informed Choice. New Global Reset was opposed by Trump as for him US First. But they have woken up the majority of people who don't believe them now. Freedom Loving People all around the World are now more United & won't let them steal our jobs, & freedom to practice or Speech, though they used Big Tech to Censor us, to delete our posts. They Closed some doors but many more got opened as alternative flat forms are Opening up.

    Fantastic this ! For all the fear mongering, vaccine promotion and profiteering pundits!!!! Who is this honest team of doctors ? How can we get a copy of this report? I seriously doubt it is a govt. report. If it is then this team of doctors are likely to go "MIA" very soon. The greed and lust for power and money knows no bounds. There is a worldwide criminal conspiracy to voluntarily forcefully vaccinate abt. 8 billion people of the world - not once, not twice but maybe thrice every year. At just $10 per single dose vaccination this amounts to $240 billion worldwide annual turn-over. This is an immoral and unethical businessman's dream. The equivalent of the computer anti-virus industry, with annual renewals - now for humans! Those who think that the govt. will pay and they will get it free are fooling themselves. Govt's are beggars they spend lavishly by robbing from the populace by way of taxes. Anything free can only mean increased taxes resulting in making the poor more poor. Thank goodness there are still few people left like Dev, Monty Dotor & John(sans the biblical quotes) etc. who are still capable of thinking for themselves, reading, learning and asking questions.

    Only 17 cases.....? then where is Covid.... ? Only hype through media, through fear and through hyped figures that everyone go for the vaccine by vaccine mafia to make more money. Bill Gates must have given a lot to lot of people around the world but he says return on investment in vaccine business is 20:1. So more billions for him in the name of few millions in philanthropy and commission. Anyways it seems he installs and controls Top WHO officials through his money power. But hope he fools not people with evil high tech nano particle vaccines, as he himself told in his Ted talks and previous interviews that he is pro abortion population control and with vaccines 15 % world population can be reduced to bring down global warming or climate change.

    Close all schools and college as soon as possible cause virus is spreading through children as they are not able to maintain social distance There should be surprise vist to school by officials to see how the schools are handeling for example a college in mangalore that is named MAPS there are about 100+ students in a classi know this through my friends there and students are forced to sit 4-5 in a row There is no proper social distancing precautions taken by this college My friends there told me that when the college gets the news that the authority may come to check the classes are divided to sections to fool the department If such practice is done by such a reputed college imagine to what extent the virus may have been spread There are no shown symptoms in youth but they can still be carriers there are no proper testing facilities in mangalore Tests in govt hospitals take up to to 15days to come Exams are approaching and there are no precautionary measures take my schools and colleges across DK and Udupi There should be strict action taken against such institutes that concentrate more on making profit rather that health of the nation

    I've been commenting the same since last year. With recovery rate of 99.997% the present monster is just like a bug we've all had since our childhood a viral cold like illnesses and doesn't qualify to be called a pandemic. Now please release the data of previous years of deaths without corona so that we can make out why unscientific mandates aren't necessary. No kids ever got in the list of deaths in any country but data proves they didn't infect their teachers or parents too. Let us open our eyes and expose the pandemic scare created by some vested interests and stop PCR Pandemic thereby saving our nation from further destruction.
