Virgin Supreme Court has slammed the Delhi government for calling its care of the patient during the horrible, horrible and pathetic Covid-19 pandemic.
The superior court also cited news reports showing a deplorable condition of medical salaries in Delhi, where dead bodies are not only found in the corridors but are also found in lobby and waiting areas.
The observation came from a bank of Justices Ashok Bhushan, S.K. Kaul and M. R. Shah, whose motives take the knowledge of the patients treated to covid patients in hospitals as well as the indignant way in which the covid patients are treated.
The bank did not utter a word in the slamming of the Delhi government, led by Arvind Kejriwal for its treatment of dead bodies, calling it “a very affected state”. The court noted that Covid’s patients were treated worse than animals with falling bodies that were found in trash.
Attorney General Tushar Mehta, a representative of the Center, said there was a case in Delhi where the fallen bodies were found next to the patients, who were undergoing treatment. Mehta said that showing no respect for a dead body is also an offense by the Indian Penal Code. Justice Shah asked Mehta, “So, what did you do?”
The bank added that patients cry in pain and there is no one to assist them. “A video from the LNJP Hospital showed how the treatments for the fallen were treated. There is absolutely no respect even for the dead bodies,” the bank said.
The bank said there is no adherence to the Center’s guidelines, and that hospitals will not take care of dead bodies. The court criticized the Delhi government, noting that more than 2,000 beds are empty, as no one wants to go to these hospitals. The bank told lawyer Chirag Shroff, who represents the Delhi government, patients are being pathetic in hospitals.
He lamented that in some cases, the families of the dead have no information about the dead and the latest rites happen even without information.
The bank is reprimanding the government for patients placed next to the stacks of dead bodies in hospitals. The bank noted that the patients ’families were not yet informed about the deaths and in some cases, the families were unable to attend the latest rites.
The bank noted that there is a problem with how to fight the pandemic in the national capital. “The number of tests performed is low in Delhi compared to Chennai and Mumbai … Why are there fewer tests in Delhi?” said the bank. “No one should be denied the tests for technical reasons … simplify the procedure so that more and more people can try Covid,” the bank said.
The superior court observed that it is the duty of the state to do tests so that more people know about their health status. The high court also noted that the situation is also bleak in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal, and sought reports from four states.
The Supreme Court has ruled that hospitals across the country do not take proper care of Covid-19 deaths. The bank – considering the spike in cases in Maharashtra, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu – has issued warnings to its top secretaries and asked them to keep relevant statistical records on the patient management system, the number of patients , the availability of beds and doctors. .
The court also sought the answer from the Center and listed the case for the new hearing next week.
