The death rate of males is around 70%. 70% of deaths have been seen in patients with hypertension-diabetes and other diseases. Deaths in pregnant women are quite low, so from this analysis we will find out which patients are high-risk patients here. ”

Deaths are now under control even among co-morbid patients. Doctors at Maharashtra Kovid Task Force BMC Hospital KEM say that if the patients reached the hospital early, there would not have been such a number of deaths.
Dr Rahul Pandit of Maharashtra Kovid Task Force said that “People were lying late in the beginning of the epidemic, because people did not know, when awareness increased, people started coming quickly, in the last 2-3 months, these patients suffered. It has reduced because such patients are coming to the hospital soon.


Dr. Aseem Gargava of the Cardiac Anesthesia Department of KEM Hospital said that “There has been a significant reduction in mortality rate. It is a result of this that in the last 11 months, we have also understood what this disease progresses. Response to medicines is shown differently. We are also using steroid in the treatment of serious patients due to which the chances of increasing the sugar level remain. This also increased the suffering of patients.

With this analysis, the Maharashtra government is identifying high-risk patients for vaccination of Kovid, as well as strengthening measures to save these patients in the treatment of Kovid.
