Coronavirus Punjab: While most governments across the globe have been pilloried for their stark Covid data inconsistencies, Punjab has set high standards in pandemic data reliability and efficiency, a report stated.
Disclosing this, a government spokesperson said that right from the time Covid struck, Punjab’s effective response against the deadly coronavirus onslaught has been nurtured on data, scrupulously collected, and maintained by the state health authorities.
It is because of the pinpointed data and its analysis that Punjab has been able to weather the tough COVID situation much better than many other states during both waves, the spokesperson added.
Punjab’s pandemic data reliability has set the high standard where many others have been found wanting, the spokesperson said referring to a media report in The Print.
The Print stated that “Kerala’s data is quite reliable as it fits Benford’s curve quite nicely. Punjab also has fairly accurate data indicated by a very good fit between the Benford curve and the curve for its data.”
The total number of coronavirus cases in Punjab has increased to 5,84,785 while recoveries stand at 5,53,174.
