The Supreme Court has been hearing suo motu or registered on its own motion, cases on the management of second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. In April, the top court took a suo motu cognisance of the situation of the country, supply of oxygen and essential drugs, the method and manner of vaccination and the power to declare lockdowns, and asked the Centre to present a national plan on Covid-19 management, covering all these issues.
And, recently the Supreme Court strongly disapproved the Centre’s vaccination policy along with a direction to the Union government “to undertake a fresh review of its vaccination policy”. In a 32-page order on June 2, the top court’s bench underscored that the Centre’s vaccination policy, which put the entire onus of giving doses to adults in the below-45 year age group on the states and private hospitals, was “prima facie arbitrary and irrational”.
