Watch | COVID-19 Bulletin: Data From Cremation, Burial Grounds Contradicts Delhi's Official Toll

The Wire's daily updates.

According to a report published in Dainik Bhaskar, there is a mismatch between the number of dead reported by the Delhi government and the data from cremation grounds in Delhi. While the Delhi government has claimed that only 68 people have died so far in the city from COVID-19, 225 cremations have been performed under the protocol designed for the handling of dead bodies of coronavirus patients at Nigambodh Ghat and Punjabi Bagh crematoriums and 89 burials had been carried out in adherence with the protocol at the ITO graveyard for Muslims. So the actual death count from cases of the novel coronavirus stood at 314 by Saturday.
