The Supreme Court has expressed displeasure over the clarificatory notification submitted by the Gujarat government over the Rajkot hospital fire incident of 2020 that claimed lives of several Covid-19 patients.
The Supreme Court declined to hear a PIL seeking a direction to allow the distribution of a “herbal concoction” claiming it has shown miraculous results in numerous Covid-19 patients, including critical patients with low oxygen levels.
After hearing the Counsels for both sides and looking into the facts and circumstances, the Bench said that it sees no reason to entertain the writ petition and not inclined even to issue a notice in this case.
The plea submits that the Delhi government has not issued any guideline or policy for providing status reports of the Covid-19 patients admitted in hospitals to the attendants or family members therefore they are not aware about the status of the condition of the patient.
After reports of black marketing of fake Remdesivir injections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajya Sabha MP and Senior Advocate Vivek Tankha has written to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Chouhan demanding the state government compensate the patients and their families from these merchants of death.
The petitioner also prayed for all the Ayurvedic, Homeopathic, Unani and Naturopathy hospitals of the country should be converted to Covid-19 Care Centers so that the Covid patients can be easily treated.
The Supreme Court will hear a petition on Monday, seeking direction to both the Central Government and the state governments to formulate a high-powered Committee in every state, which shall monitor the channelised and administered distribution policy of medical facilities to Covid-19 patients.
