The Telangana High Court today expressed displeasure at the state government over its preparedness to tackle a possible third wave of Covid-19 in the state.
The court asked the government for a report in a week after getting an expert committee to meet to decide on the steps to control a third wave.
Health director Srinivas Rao submitted a report of the steps being taken to check a third wave in the state, and informed the court that the health officials and staff were ready to tackle a third wave.
More oxygen and healthcare facilities were available now to face the situation, and the government was giving all possible support, he claimed.
However, the bench comprising interim CJ Ramachandra Rao and Vinod Kumar felt unhappy as there was an increasing number of cases in north Telangana, and expressed disappointment that no expert committee meeting had been held in this regard.
The court asked the health director to submit a report of the expert committee on the same soon.
