Lucknow: Pakistan’s leading daily ‘Dawn’ editor Fahd Husain is in all praise for Uttar Pradesh government for handling coronavirus cases in the state. He has also ridiculed Maharashtra government for mismanagement in dealing with the pandemic.
Taking to Twitter, Husain has shared a graph comparing the death rate of Pakistan and Uttar Pradesh.
He tweeted, “Look at this graph carefully. It compares death rate of Pakistan and Indian state of UP. Both have roughly same population profile & literacy. Pakistan has lesser density/km and higher GDP/capita. UP was strict with lockdown. We were not. See diff in death rate #COVIDー19.”
According to the graph shared by Fahd Husain, Pakistan has a population of 20.8 crore while Uttar Pradesh has over 22.5 crore people living in it. And despite having more population, UP has reported very few COVID-19 cases as compared to Pakistan.
“While the Indian state of UP has a lower mortality rate than Pakistan, Maharashtra has a higher rate despite the younger population and higher GDP/capita. We must know what UP did right and Maharashtra did wrong to learn the right lessons,” he tweeted.
