Major Nation Condemns WHO for ‘Unscientific’ COVID Guidance

The World Health Organization based its estimate of the number of people who would die from the COVID-19 pandemic on “erroneous assumptions” and “unscientific” model, charges the government of India.

The WHO’s estimate – nearly twice as high as India’s official COVID death toll – reflected the “one size fits all” approach of the United Nations agency, the government said, Breitbart News reported.

The complaint, summarized by the Times of India, was presented to a meeting of Parliament on Tuesday.

The WHO’s model estimates the total of Indian coronavirus fatalities is about 4.7 million higher than the official government figure of 5.2 million.

India’s health minister, Bharati Pravin Pawar, argued the WHO’s modeling might fit smaller countries but cannot be applied to a massive, diverse country like India.

“The mathematical modeling based approach by WHO suffered from a number of inconsistencies and erroneous assumptions,” Pawar wrote.
