The Delhi High Court today directed that a dedicated Covid health centre with oxygenated beds be set up inside the Jawaharlal Nehru University campus.

The direction was given by Justice Prathiba M. Singh, on a plea by the students’ union and the teachers’ union at JNU, as well as two professors who teach at the University.

The petition sought various directions to the respondents (JNU), including a direction for setting up of Covid care facilities in the University Campus, as also a Covid response team, and certain Oxygen facilities inside the University Campus premises.

The petition said that due to the outbreak of the second wave of Covid around the second week of April, the petitioners had written a letter to the Registrar of the Respondent University, highlighting the alarming situation on the JNU campus, seeking various steps to be taken for controlling the situation.

Thereafter, the petitioners were continuously sending letters to the Registrar of JNU, the Vice Chancellor of JNU as also the ADM/ SDM of the concerned area, seeking immediate intervention for setting up Covid care facilities within campus in light of the massive surge of Covid-19 and the number of Covid positive cases within the JNU campus.
