Covid deaths due to oxygen shortage no less than genocide: Allahabad High Court

The Indian Express

The Allahabad High Court on Tuesday directed the district magistrates (DMs) of Lucknow and Meerut to verify news of Covid-19 patients dying due to oxygen shortage. The court observed that 'death of Covid patients just for non-supplying of oxygen to the hospitals is a criminal act and not less than a genocide' by those responsible for ensuring the continuous procurement and supply of medical oxygen.

A Bench of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar asked 'how can we let people die in this way' when medical science had advanced so much that heart transplantations and brain surgeries were now a reality.
