New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday directed the AAP government and the Centre to file affidavits disclosing number of Covid hospital beds and to look into shortage of oxygen supply in the national capital.
A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli said the Centre and the Delhi government in their affidavits shall also give details as to how many hospital beds are with or without ventilators and oxygen support.
In the affidavit, the Centre shall inform that how many COVID-19 beds are allocated by it to the Delhi government with or without ICU and with or without oxygen, the Justices said.
The bench directed Inox, which used to supply oxygen to Delhi hospitals and has suddenly stopped, to restore the oxygen supply immediately.
The Court was told that Inox was supplying oxygen to other states but not to Delhi.
In the wake of exponential surge in infections, the bench said that the Delhi government’s order on action against pathology labs for not delivering coronavirus test reports within 24 hours, shall not be implemented.
The Court will take up the matter tomorrow.
