Supreme Court Seeks Centre’s Plan On Supply Of Oxygen, Remdisivir, Vaccination Method

New Delhi: The Supreme Court issued notice to the Centre on Thursday seeking a “national plan” on oxygen and Remdisivir supply and method of vaccination.

“We want to see the national plan on this issue,” Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said.

The apex court will hear the matter again on Friday.

With the second wave of COVID-19 running havoc in India like a tsunami, a grave crisis of oxygen, hospital beds and Remdesivir drug arose. Medical Facilities in several cities, including Delhi, have been reaching out for help fearing that supply will run out of stock.

Even as six High Courts are hearing shortage-related petitions on a regular basis, the top court stepped in.

“We wish to take suo moto cognizance of certain issues in six High Courts — Delhi, Bombay, Sikkim, Madhya Pradesh, Calcutta and Allahabad. Now they are exercising their jurisdiction in their best interest. But what is happening is some kind of confusion and diversion of resources,” Bobde said.

Also comprising Justices LN Rao and SR Bhat, the bench will also examine the issue relating to the power of high courts to announce lockdown in view of the pandemic.

The Supreme Court appointed senior advocate Harish Salve as an amicus curiae to assist it in the suo moto proceedings.
