The AAP government on Sunday issued show-cause notices to four major hospitals in the national capital over delay in reporting of Covid-19 deaths.

The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences, Ram Manohar Lohia, Safdarjung and Lok Nayak Jai Prakash hospitals were asked to explain the reasons for delay in reporting the deaths in violation of the directions issued by the state health department and the Delhi Disaster Management Authority under the Disaster Management Act.

The action comes a day after health minister Satyendar Jain said the sudden increase in number of Covid fatalities in the capital was because of late reporting by a few hospitals. The Delhi government has been facing flak for alleged under reporting of deaths.
