Medical infra in a shambles don t be like ostrich with head in sand HC to Delhi govt
| Friday | 7th May, 2021
A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli further said the government was behaving like an ostrich with its head in the sand if it was disputing that the medical infrastructure was not in shambles.
“Now you are behaving like the ostrich with its head in the sand.
We always call a spade a spade” the bench said to senior advocate Rahul Mehra appearing for the Delhi government when he argued that the court may not say the medical infrastructure was in shambles.
He said the government has several initiatives like augmenting beds by 15000 and ICU beds by 1200 which are in the pipeline and the oxygen is also coming in.
The observations and direction came while hearing a 53-year-old COVID patient's plea for an ICU bed with a ventilator as his SPO2 levels had fallen to around 40 and he was unable to get ICU beds anywhere.
