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?

  • The court said- The government has no concrete action plan. Some data are handed over to the court through some officers of the Health Department. Whatever action plan the government has given so far, they are half incomplete and not up to mark to deal with the problem. He does not even have an advisory committee of doctors, scientists, bureaucrats who dealt with this corona explosion. {There is no war room till now. Even after repeated orders on the oxygen supply, no tangible results have been achieved.
  • The government has said that two plants of pressure switch absorption system were installed in two Kovid hospitals and work started. However, according to the report of the expert committee, oxygen production has not started till today. The government’s reports were misleading.
  • The bench said that 194 MT of oxygen is being received daily from the central quota, but why only 160 MT of oxygen is being lifted daily.
  • Counsel for the Central Government stated that if there is no lift of 34 MT of oxygen from the prescribed quota, it lapse.

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.
