High Court Orders Covid-19 Tests On Dead Bodies, Too

The Telangana High Court today asked the state government to conduct coronavirus detection tests on dead bodies, too.
Hyderabad | 14th May 2020
In the wake of the increase in the number of coronavirus infections in the state, the Telangana High Court on Thursday asked the state government to conduct coronavirus detection tests on dead bodies, too.

A division bench of the HC passed these orders while dealing with a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by TJS leader P L Visweswar Rao seeking a direction to the state government to conduct tests on dead bodies, while also urging it to quash the orders of the state government to not conduct detection tests.

The counsel for Rao told the HC that the not conducting tests on dead bodies would push the state into the third stage of the spread of the coronavirus.

He also told the HC that the presence of the virus in them had come to light in some states of the country after performing tests on the dead bodies of some doctors.

Agreeing with the arguments of the counsel for the petitioner, the division bench expressed its displeasure over the report of the state government. It issued orders to the state government to strictly follow the guidelines issued by the WHO and other regulatory organisations on the containment of the coronavirus.

It also asked the central government to submit a report on the steps initiated by the union government to contain the spread of the virus before May 26, before adjourning the case to the same date.
