No patient shall be denied hospitalisation, essential drugs for lack of local residential proof: SC

In the wake of the second wave of COVID-19, the Supreme Court, in an order, directed the Centre to formulate within two weeks a national policy on admissions to hospitals. In its order, the top court said no patient shall be denied hospitalisation or essential drugs in any state for lack of local residential proof. A three-member apex court bench, comprising Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice L Nageswara Rao and Justice Ravindra Bhat also directed the Centre and state governments to notify that any clampdown on information on social media or harassment caused to individuals seeking help on any platform will attract coercive action.
