Hussain tweeted a graph, prepared by an expert, to compare the Covid-19 death toll in Pakistan and Uttar Pradesh and explain how the two handled the crisis and what was its impact.

As per the graph, Pakistan has a population of 208 million and UP has a population of 225 million. And despite entertaining a higher population, UP’s COVID-19 death rate is almost seven times lower than what of Pakistan. Fahd had also compared Pakistan’s stats with Maharastra.

He tagged a comparative graph with another tweet and said: “While the Indian state of UP has a lower mortality rate than Pakistan, Maharashtra has a higher rate despite younger population and higher GDP/capita. We must know what UP did right and Maharashtra did wrong to learn the right lessons.”

For the unaware, mortality rate is the no. of deaths in a given period of time.

His stats, when shared on the internet invited mixed responses. While many praised the same, some people were left irked. Have a look:
