Benford's Law is very popular in catching up the wrongdoings in the numbers or finding the anomalies in the numbers.

Many developed countries used Benford's Law to find data fudging in Taxes, social media fake profile detection, finding digital frauds etc.


But did anyone try to run Benford's Law on the #Covid19 numbers of Indian States ?

I am not sure, but I tried to put these numbers together which i have collected online from various open-source sources. These are the combined numbers of 1st and 2nd wave.


I am not claiming if these numbers are real, because I have collected these numbers form open sources over internet.
Also, I am not claiming if #BenfordLaw is most accurate in finding the fraud.

I am just sharing the outcome of Benford's law.
