Officials ask for metadata on Char Dham deaths

Dehradun: Uttarakhand chief secretary SS Sandhu on Tuesday chaired a meeting directing health staff to "accurately record the causes of deaths of pilgrims" on the Char Dham yatra route. The development came on the same day that reported that a majority of the 108 deaths that occurred in less than a month of the yatra could be traced to post-Covid complicantions.
"After the report was published, health staff deployed on the yatra route were asked to intensively and accurately record the Covid history of the pilgrims who died. Everyone felt there was a need to collect the metadata (detailed findings of probable reasons of death) to establish reasons," a senior doctor, who is privy to the developments, said, The meeting included health and medical education secretary Radhika Jha and director-general of health Dr Shailja Bhatt.
