Kishori Pednekar: Data of COVID deaths not being hidden, Mumbai does not have rivers to dump bodies

Mumbai reported 785 new cases of infection and 27 deaths on Wednesday. The total of cases in the financial capital of the country rose to 7,12, 840, while its death toll reached 15,033 . The larger Mumbai division reported 2,403 new cases and 47 deaths, taking the region''s case load to 15,54,814 and death toll to 28,553. 

Mumbai mayor Kishori Pednekar on Thursday said that city does not have any rivers to dump the dead bodies. The statement can be seen as a jibe at BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh and Bihar where hundreds of covid dead bodies were found floating in Ganga river or buried in the sand of its banks.

“We have never underreported Covid deaths. We will never do so in Mumbai. We don’t have rivers to dump the dead bodies. We respect families and we duly give death certificates," the mayor said.

Data of COVID deaths are not being hidden. No data is being hidden in Mumbai. There is no river in Mumbai where bodies of people succumbing to Corona are being dumped. All COVID deaths in Mumbai are recorded at 3 places, so the data can't be hidden, Pednekar added.
