New Delhi: While hearing on the circumstances of Corona and Black Fungus in Delhi, the Delhi High Court has also questioned the central government’s vaccination policy. Commenting during the hearing, the Delhi High Court said that the Central Government will also have to make a clear policy regarding vaccination because in the present policy, the people who are being given priority in vaccination and are being protected are older people and who People are safe today due to lack of vaccine, these are the people who are young and the future of the country. In such a situation, the central government needs to pay attention to this.
The court also remarked that every decision and step of the central government cannot be questioned because it is a time of disaster and the resources of the government are flowing like Ganges. Referring to the rising price of petrol during this period, the court said that it is also necessary to understand here that the treasury of the central government is becoming empty.
Comment on Vaccination Policy
Commenting on the Central Government’s vaccination policy during the hearing, the Delhi High Court said that we do not even understand your vaccination policy. If you don’t have a vaccine, then how did you announce that everyone will have it? We had to secure the future of the country but today we are not able to provide them vaccine. At this time we are giving the vaccine to those people whose age is 70 years. How many young people died from this disease? This youth is the future of our country.
The court said that the central government will have to make some policy, so that the future of the country can be secured. As many countries of the world have done. For example, like Italy said that we will give priority to the youth in treatment, even if the elderly people get beds in the hospital or not. The Delhi High Court commented that people of 80 years of age will not take the country forward. The responsibility of taking the country forward lies with the young people. In such a situation, if we have to protect someone first, then only these youths have to do it. If the situation remains like this and if we do not take action ourselves, then even God will not be able to help us.
Increasing cases of black fungus
At the same time, hearing the issue of increasing cases of black fungus and shortage of injections used in the treatment, the Delhi High Court commented that a few days ago the central government had talked about the availability of 2,30,000 vials, but at present, today’s As of date, that figure is visible only on paper. Meanwhile, the central government told the court that the drug of black fungus coming from abroad has been exempted with certain conditions. Commenting on which the court said that it is not yet clear from the data presented by the central government that how many injections used in the treatment of black fungus will be available with the country in the month of June.
During this, the counsel for the Central Government told the court that in the month of April, where only 62,000 Vials of Amphoterisin B were present, now their production has increased to 3.25 lakhs. For this, 5 new companies have also been licensed. In this way, the availability of amphotericin B in the month of June can be 352000 vials.
Similarly, the production of Posconzole was 10 lakh vials in the month of April, which has been increased to 67 lakhs. Apart from this, 7 lakh injections from abroad are coming to India. Apart from this, 2,00,000 more injections are being arranged through some different means. Similarly, 2,30,000 violations are being arranged from more companies. Many foreign companies have also given assurance of providing this injection to India.
Commenting on this, the court said that during the last hearing you had talked about 2,30,000 vials but in today’s date there is no clarity about whether these 2,30,000 vials will be available or not. The court has commented and said that it is clear that the information given by you to the court is not completely convincing. The court said that the central government is giving information to the court, it is only based on the expectation that these companies will get injections, but what if they did not give? The court remarked that in such an environment the ICMR should issue guidelines on what options can be used in place of an injection if it is not because people are being killed by the disease and yet someone There are no clear guidelines either.
How many injections needed?
During this debate, the senior lawyer present in the court informed the court that there were 620 cases of black fungus in Delhi last Friday and a patient needs 6 injections in 1 day. Accordingly, 3720 injections were needed but only 1920. On Monday, the number of black fungus cases increased to 940. 5640 injections were needed but only 1050 were received. How will the patients be treated in such a situation? Meanwhile, the counsel for the Delhi government told the court that as of today, there are a total of 601 black fungus patients in Delhi. The central government had said to give 7260 injections but only 6,060 injections have been received at the moment.
The Delhi High Court order said that at present there are a total of 792 cases of black fungus in Delhi, out of which 601 cases are in hospitals under the Delhi government and in private hospitals, while 191 cases are in the hospitals under the central government. At present, 1230 vials are being provided to Delhi according to the policy of the Center. The court said that but according to the average requirement so far, a patient needs 6 vials in a day for treatment.
The court said that it has also been informed that for the treatment of this disease, a drug named Posconjole can also be used. The High Court said that it would also be necessary to understand from experts, doctors and experts here that if a patient needs 6 injections and is given 2, then he will get some benefit and if only two injections are taken then with him Which medicine can be given, which will improve the patient’s health and how is it being decided which patient needs the medicine first, which later?

Have to answer
The court said in its order that now ICMR will have to answer these and more such questions and clearly issue guidelines regarding the treatment of black fungus. The court said that even though the central government is trying on its own behalf to make the vaccine available for this disease, it is also a fact that there is a huge shortage of injections used in the treatment of black fungus in the country today. The court said that if we look at the figures only, then to date there is a two-thirds shortage of the vaccine used in the treatment of black fungus in the country.
The court commented that even today some more medicines are available in the country, so now there is a need for a policy as to which medicine is to be given to this patient. The court said that the Center will also have to make a policy about which patients have to provide injections on a priority basis, so that at least some lives can be saved if not everyone. The court said that while deciding such a policy, experts and experts should also keep in mind that the future and youth of the country can be secured first.
