The Patna High Court, while hearing a case related to corona epidemic in the state, asked the state government whether it had installed CT scan machines in all government medical colleges in the state.
A bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Karol heard the public interest litigation of Dinesh Kumar Singh and others. The court directed the state government to provide detailed information. Advocate Itika Rani told the court that even two per cent of the people in the state had not been tested for coronary heart disease.
The state, with a population of 120 million, has only 9 RT PCR machines, which can accurately test the corona. However, it was also used in small quantities. CCTV was not installed at Kovid Hospital despite the directions of the Supreme Court and the High Court. The court also wanted the government to know that an expert team of doctors was not formed to inspect the Kovid hospitals. The next hearing in the case is set for September 18
