New Delhi, May 28 (ILNS) The Union government today apprised the Delhi High Court about the steps being taken to curb the spread of Black Fungus, including 2.3 lakh vials of Liposomal Amphotericin-B being procured from other countries.

The Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Jasmeet Singh said, “The Union of India has filed a consolidated status report, which inter alia, disposes the sources identified abroad by the Health Ministry and the Ministry of External Affairs. MEA has been called upon to procure 2.3 lakh doses from different countries.

“The Central government should place before this court, the detailed current status about the 2.3 lakh vials on Monday, also as to how the figure was arrived at and whether there is better availability of drug which could be imported.

“A lot of these questions are raised and they are only arising due to lack of information. In your report,” the Court added.

Central government Standing Counsel Kirtiman Singh said, “There are three notifications. If I am getting it for free from outside for personal use, there is no duty. The other is of one for personal use from medical facility outside. There is a charge. Third is for commercial use…there is a minimal duty.”

Justice Sanghi: “Look this commercial use is ultimately for people.” The Court fixed May 31 as the next date of hearing. ILNS/ABV/RJ
