BHOPAL: RTI activist Ajay Dubey has demanded audit of corona death cases and adequate compensation to the families of deceased in the state. He also demanded proper check-up of all MLAs and officials of Vidhan Sabha after sending them in quarantine after BJP MLA Om Prakash Saklecha and his wife were tested positive for the COVID-19.

RTI activist further said that even PS health Faiz Ahmed Kidwai had raised the issue of negligence by hospital management and referral in corona deaths. He has written letters to collectors and CMHO mentioning four cases of death in Bhopal, Indore and Shajapur.

He said, “We demand for audit in corona death cases and action should be taken against officials, if they found guilty. Bereaved families should be given proper compensation.”

Many states have formed audit committee to look into matter. The committee goes through the case sheets, investigations, and death summary of the deceased before classifying it as a COVID-19 death. The Death Audit Committee follows the guidelines prescribed by the ICMR. Hospitals are mandated to submit their death summaries to the committee within 24 hours. Death Audit Committee is an independent body which examines each of these cases.
