K’taka HC asks govt if timeline been fixed to jab entire state


Team Udayavani, Jul 29, 2021, 9:22 AM IST

Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court passed an order directing the State Government to place on record if a timeline has been fixed to vaccinate the entire population of the state.

A special division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Shreeniwas Oka and Justice Aravind Kuma passed the order during the hearing of a batch of PILs related to Covid-19.

The bench also directed the government to place on record if any special drive is being conducted to vaccinate all students as colleges are now open.

Pointing out that the State Government has not placed the vision document as preparedness for a possible third wave, the court asked the State Government to clarify its statement on the routine immunization of children being done at the schools and anganwadis, as both of them are not yet opened.

Taking note of the issue raised by the advocate of a petition, the court said that it is appropriate for the government to set up a grievance redressal mechanism at the earliest to address the complaints on private hospitals overcharging Covid patients admitted to government quota beds and take steps to reimburse them.
