COVID patients treated worse than animals: SC pulls up Delhi Govt

New Delhi: Coronavirus patients are being treated “worse than animals”, the Supreme Court said today as it pulled up Delhi amid spurt of virus cases in the national capital.
“COVID-19 patients are treated worse than animals. In one case, a body was found in garbage,” the court said this afternoon as it asked the Arvind Kejriwal government to explain the fall in testing in the national capital.
“Why has your testing gone down from 7,000 to 5.000 a day when Chennai and Mumbai have increased their testing from 16,000 to 17,000?” the court asked.
Delhi has the third highest number of coronavirus cases in India after Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. The national capital has logged 34,687 patients so far and 1,085 death, according to the Union Health Ministry.
