Earlier, the high court had asked the Delhi government to state by when the measures suggested for implementing the blue print prepared by IIT Delhi on oxygen distribution would be implemented. The court has given the government four weeks for this.
A bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Jasmeet Singh had said that since the rate of infection is decreasing, we should not get into resting mode right now. The bench had said that we should continue to take appropriate and prompt steps to deal with the challenges that may arise in future.
On this, senior advocate Rahul Mehra, appearing for the Delhi government, said that the officers in us are working on a war footing and we are not in rest mode. On the orders of the bench, IIT Delhi has prepared a blue print on the request of the government so that no patient should die in the capital due to lack of oxygen in the third wave of corona infection. The blue print was also presented by the government in the High Court.
