A bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud said, your petition was to provide adequate facilities to Non-Covid patients during the Lockdown period, which is over now.

The plea moved by Supreme Court Lawyer GS Mani in May 2021, claimed that due to Covid 19 lock down situation when already Covid-19 patients are struggling to get proper medical treatment. Now, non-covid 19 patients are struggling as well to get proper medical treatment. They are also not getting admission, proper medical treatment and facilities in govt and private hospitals in all the States and UTs due to heavy rush in the Covid ward. Many hospitals have stopped their Emergency ward treatment and postponed major surgeries. Above non-Covid patients need regular treatment. Plea further claims that the right of Public health is a fundamental right guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. A state defines under Article 12 of the Constitution is duty-bound to protect the said fundamental right of every citizen, failing in which the Supreme Court of India under Article 32 is duty-bound to enforce the same./ILNS/KR/SNG
