Mumbai: An analytical study has revealed that about 30 per cent of the deaths in the second wave in the state occurred in the first three days after hospitalization. The situation was the same in the first wave. Therefore, even in the third possible wave, it will be possible to prevent death if patients are diagnosed in time and hospitalized in time, experts said.
The death analysis committee has studied 60,022 deaths in the second wave. The highest number of 18,033 deaths (30 per cent) occurred in the first three days after hospitalization.
About 53 per cent deaths have been reported in a week. A study of 39,688 deaths in the first wave found that the highest number of 12,501 hospital deaths, or about 30 per cent, occurred in the first three days. Even in the first wave, 53 per cent of the deaths occurred within a week.
Even in a possible third wave, deaths can be prevented if patients are diagnosed early and hospitalized early, said Dr. Krishna Kumar of the Death Analysis Committee. Expressed by Avinash Supe.
