Worrisome: Maharashtra’s Corona death rate worsens

It appears Maharashtra’s death rate has worsened over the last two weeks.

Between 17th of May and 31st of May, for every 100 deaths, 1900 people recovered

Between 1st of June and 15th of June, for every 100 deaths, there were just 1500 recoveries

The increase in death rate coincides with a Slowdown in Testing in Maharashtra. Tests which increased at the rate of 82% in the first two weeks of May and 77% in the last two weeks of May have increased by only 45% increase in June

The slowdown in itself means nothing but when there is a spike in deaths, it means the State is not Testing enough leading to late detection in cases!
