Lack of health infrastructure behind rise in diseases across Gujarat: Manasvi Thapar
| Wednesday | 21st August, 2019
In a public interest litigation (PIL) questioning the shortage of health infrastructure, the petitioner — Manasvi Thapar — on Tuesday submitted before the Gujarat High Court that the state has the second-highest number of swine flu cases in the country in 2019.
It was also submitted that Gujarat ranks third in the country when it comes to swine flu deaths.
Thapar has claimed that patients are being charged for being treated, whereas the government continues to claim that free treatment is being rendered.
While 36 cholera cases were registered in August last year, no case of cholera has been reported till August 17.
Following the submission of the affidavit, the court has now posted the hearing of the matter on August 29.
