The Telangana High Court today heard a batch of petitions filed on the Covid-19 spread in the state.
The court expressed its displeasure at the low number of Covid tests being done in the state. It said that the government appeared to be increasing the testing during the hearing of the cases in the court and decreasing the number later.
It asked the government to increase the tests to one lakh per day, and to ensure stocks of RT-PCR kits in all the districts of the state.
Adding that a second wave of Covid-19 was staring at the state, it also asked the government to also strictly implement all Covid-19 guidelines.
The court also sought of the state government the details of the action initiated against the private hospitals collecting huge fees by violating its orders.
Expressing its anger over the non-submission of a Covid-19 disaster management plan, the court asked the government to submit one by November 24.
It later adjourned the case to November 26.
