Contrary to media reports, many states have flatly denied deaths due to oxygen shortage during the second wave of Covid-19. This is despite courts pulling them up for their lackadaisical attitude towards patients.
The Court declares the strike by the nurses in the State as illegal and condemns their action especially because such a call has been given at a time when the country has still not been able to come out of the ill effects of the second wave of COVID-19.
With the second wave of Covid-19 putting further stress on the economy, the Reserve Bank of India has launched measures to enhance fund flow for the healthcare sector and inject more liquidity into the system. Will they help?
The Bar Council of India (BCI) on Friday requested the Chief Justice of India (CJI) and other brother judges of the Supreme Court to pass appropriate order/ directions to alleviate the sufferings of advocates, judges, their staff, and families devastated by the second wave of Covid-19 across the country.
