new Delhi. The Delhi High Court has given a major decision on Thursday to increase the testing capacity. The court has ordered that all private hospitals where there are labs to test the corona be allowed to do the test. The court said that in a private hospital where corona is being treated and where the lab has allowed the test by ICMR, the test should be done before the patients are admitted.
Appeal for strict lockdown in Delhi
Another petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court on Thursday. It calls for a repeat lockdown in view of increasing cases of coronaviruses. This time it has also been said to implement it more strictly. The court has been asked to give instructions to the Kejriwal government in this regard.
This petition said that the Delhi government itself believes that around one lakh cases of infection have been reported in the country's capital. The cases are expected to reach 5.5 lakh by the end of July. In such a situation, the government should also think about imposing strict lockdown.
LG gave instructions on the recruitment of patients in hospitals
The order was issued by Lt. Governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday in the case of hospitalization of patients. LG Baijal said that hospitals in Delhi will have to give information about the number of beds, room charge etc. in capital letters on the LED screen. Baijal said that this will facilitate the public and will also bring transparency in hospitals.
Earlier, LG had changed the decision of the Kejriwal government which said that only Delhiites would be treated in Delhi hospitals. LG Baijal reversed the decision a day later and said that the hospital cannot refuse to admit the patient citing lack of local residents.
