There are a lot of arguments on which state is handling Corona better. Overall, there is a consensus that 3 states are doing a poor job – Delhi, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. However, there is still no clarity on which States are doing the best. We do a head to head analysis to see which State is doing better. So far we found

  • AP outperforming UP
  • Assam Outperforming Odisha
  • Karnataka and Kerala were tied

Now we look at Bihar and UP, the two poorest states in the Country. We look at 4 metrics.

1.Cases Per Million

UP: 68 per million

Bihar: 62 per million

Bihar Wins. However if one adjusts for Testing, UP has performed better, so UP wins this one

2.Deaths Per 1000 Cases

UP: 29 per 1000 cases

Bihar: 6 per 1000 cases

Bihar Wins

3. Deaths per Million

UP: 2 per Million Citizens

Bihar: 0.35 per Million Citizens

Bihar Wins

4. Test per Million

UP: 2339 per Million Citizens

Bihar: 1189 per Million Citizens

UP Wins

This one ends in a tie, while UP does a better job on Testing and Cases, Bihar does a better job in controlling fatalities.

Caveats: Population figures were from 2011.
