Court angry over working style of fighting Corona epidemic (file photo)
On Monday, the Patna High Court expressed its displeasure over the uncontrollable situation due to the havoc of Corona in Bihar and said that the state government is failing in dealing with the epidemic. A division bench of Justice Chakradhari Sharan Singh and Justice Mohit Kumar Shah, while adjourning the hearing on the public interest litigation of Shivani Kaushik, has requested Advocate General Lalit Kishore to speak to the government till May 4 and tell the court that there will be a lockdown in the state Or not?
The displeasure of the court is that no concrete action plan has been given so far for uninterrupted oxygen supply in the hospitals of the state. Also, instead of 194 mt oxygen per day from the central quota, only 160 mt oxygen is being lifted. In addition, there is a continuing shortage of beds and ventilators. Even after the court’s directive, the ESIC hospital at Bihta has not been able to start at full capacity. Displeased with the instructions and angry at the uncontrolled pace of Corona in the state, the bench said that either the government should take a better decision or the court may have to take a tough decision.
What is the lifting of 160 MT instead of 194 MT Oxygen Cate daily?
ESIC not working at full capacity
Bihata ESIC Hospital has not been fully operational yet due to oxygen beds, labs and dispensaries. An army officer present on video conferencing told the court that the team of doctors have been sitting in Bihta since April 23, but the work did not start without bed oxygen and lab.
IGIMS is not in full use
Questioning the IGIMS being a dedicated Kovid Hospital, the bench said that it is a dedicated Kovid Hospital only to be said. There are only 10 ventilators and about 20 ICU beds while it has a capacity of thousands of beds and is useless without regular oxygen.
