According to reports, this move is helping ease the chaos amidst the state-wide vaccination drive. On Monday, May 24, the vaccination sites in the district saw a well-regulated turnout of beneficiaries thanks to the use of online customized information collection forms.
On the other hand, earlier, the Bombay High Court’s Aurangabad bench of Justices Ravindra Ghuge and Bhalchandra Debadwar stated that it was not in favour of directing the supply of medical oxygen and anti-viral coronavirus drug Remdesivir to districts of Maharashtra, adding that the State and Central Governments should coordinate to make sure supply is maintained.
Moreover, the bench added, “We are not intending to grab a share of Remdesivir injections, medical oxygen from any other district in Maharashtra. In our order, we ask the state and centre to follow their distribution policy and ensure timely supply.”
The bench was hearing a suo motu public interest litigation (PIL) on the COVID-19 pandemic in Marathwada and Northern Maharashtra. Separately, the bench made it mandatory for anybody who is found outside beyond the permitted hours of 7 AM to 11 AM to carry their Aadhaar card. Failing to comply will lead to an offence against the individual, the bench said.
