The Supreme Court has come heavily on the mismanagement of the Delhi government. Taking a view of the matter on Friday the apex court said that the condition in Delhi is ‘Horrendous”. Taking cognizance of media reports, a three-judge bench has asked the four state governments including Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and West Bengal apart from Delhi.
“Covid-19 patients are treated worse than animals. In one case, a dead body was found in the garbage“, said the bench of apex judiciary. The bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan pointed out the conditions in hospitals as well as the reduced testing for Covid-19.
The Judiciary also said that patients are running from pillar to post to get themselves admitted despite the fact that a large number of beds in government hospitals are lying vacant. The court pointed out the case of Delhi’s Lok Nayak Jai Prakash hospital..
In a media report, it was shown that how dead bodies of Covid-19 patients were lying unattended in the lobby and waiting area of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash hospital. The court said that governments are duty-bound to ensure adequate infrastructure in hospitals and also that Covid-19 patients are attended to by health workers.
