Nearby, Dinesh Singh, a banker, reads a list of those who died here last month after showing symptoms such as the flu: 17 out of 18.
Singh said that for days, they believed it was a common cold and cough. After that, people started dying, they were shocked.
Of the 17, residents said 15 had not tested Covid, or taken to hospital. And that’s why, they say, official records only show Covid’s death from the village of 3,000 in April. Singh said that the 18th death was a girl, who had a congenital heart disease and had no symptoms of Covid at all.
Among the 15 who died unanswered was Ram Samjivan Sahu, who was in charge of the stall. Sahu’s son Ganesh also said that for three days, he had a fever and a fever. So they took him to a local doctor, who gave him a basic medicine. After that her breathing became difficult, and we began searching for oxygen. But he died very quickly (April 27).

Singh, a banker, pulls out another list – of 14 people who have been placed in solitary confinement after being diagnosed with it. Singh said that in their village it is difficult to live alone.

Avdesh Gupta, 48, who worked at the Kirana store in the city, was one of two victims tested positive last month. “She had similar symptoms, colds, coughs and flu. Three days later, he was taken to a district hospital where he was tested positive for the virus and died, ”said Gupta’s new Manoj Kumar Gupta. He said that some of the dead could not be examined.
As Sultanpur Khera’s voice grew louder, district officials began work on May 2, closing the city and making an effort to inspect more people. Anshika Dikshit, Sub-Magistrate (SDM), Rae Bareli, said: “The whole village has been made a detention center and a ban has been imposed. The usual sanitisation has been going on for the past week. On May 2, we conducted nearly 150 tests, and eight people were infected. ”
Virendra Singh, Chief Medical Officer (CMO), said that in official records, only two people died of Covid in Sultanpur Khera last month. He said that they have received information about the deaths and cases in Sultanpur Khera in April. Of those, there were only two Covid tests. Some of them were old, and they may have had other incurable diseases, which caused deaths.
However, residents say that a week after the tests, there was another death – a Covid found patient, Bablu Savita, who ran a store that sold masks and textile products. “He was with Covid in March. Fourteen days later he was tested and found not to have it, ”said his niece, Prasant Kumar.
On May 9, Kumar claims to have been with his uncle. Kumar said that she woke up at 7 o’clock in the morning, but within two hours she had a headache and cried uncontrollably. After that, he fainted and that he tried to call an ambulance but could not get in. No one comes here to the village. Before they had a chance to think, he was dead.
The CMO says another 400-450 test is being conducted in the city the next day.
