Plea in SC for treatment of non-Covid patients too


New Delhi, May 20 (ILNS): A PIL moved in the Supreme Court seeks direction to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare and all states and UTs to ensure that adequate, frequent and proper medical treatment and facilities are provided to non-COVID patients, such as heart patients, pregnant women, those having diseases of the kidney, liver and lungs.

The plea also wants this facility to be extended to patients waiting for major and minor medical procedures and surgeries, during the lockdown period.

The plea has been moved by Supreme Court Advocate GS Mani and claims that due to the COVID-19 lockdown, while Novel Coronavirus patients are struggling to get proper treatment, non-Covid patients Are also struggling to get treatment. They too are not getting admission, proper medical treatment and facilities in government and private hospitals in all states and UTs due to the heavy rush in the COVID ward.

Many hospitals have stopped their emergency ward treatment and postponed major surgeries. The plea said that non-COVID patients also need regular treatment, while talking about the Right to Health. ILNS\KR\SJ\RJ
