The Telangana High Court today once again asked the state government to perform Covid-19 tests on the dead patients of the state.
It also asked the state government to perform the tests on all those who fell in the high risk group irrespective of whether they displayed symptoms or not.
A division bench of the HC expressed its displeasure over the conduct of coronavirus tests in the state, and asked the state government why it was not able to perform more tests like its counterparts across the country.
It also asked the state government to submit a detailed report by revealing the details of the coronavirus detection tests conducted in the state from March 11. And it set aside the plea of the state government that there was no need to perform the tests on dead bodies.
The court also asked the state government to submit the letters written by union government to the state on coronavirus testing. It further directed the state government to provide the details of the PPE kits given to the hospital doctors and para-medical staff.
It asked the government to submit a report on the issue before June 4.
