UP Govt allows hospitals to treat non-COVID patients.

Uttar Pradesh Government has allowed the government hospitals, private hospitals as well as nursing homes in the state to open the OPD’s for treating the non-COVID 19 patients.



On Monday, the High Court of Allahabad had sought response from the State Government on the viability of the Government order which had restricted the Hospitals from providing treatment to Non-COVID-19 patients.

The bench comprising Justice Pankaj Mittal and Justice Yashwant Varma had asked the Government to explain how come OPDs are closed. The Court order came on a plea filed by All India Peoples Front (Radical) through its National Spokesperson S.R. Darapuri.



The bench referred to the State Government’s notifications dated 23.3.2020 and 31.5.2020 by which the government and private hospitals as well as nursing homes in the State of U.P. have been restricted from opening the OPDs for treating the non-COVID-19 patients except in case of an emergency.

The bench directed Manish Goyal, Additional Advocate General appearing for the State Government to seek instructions as to the present state of affairs and about the viability of continuing with such restriction.

The bench also directed the State Government and the C.M.O. to revisit the aforesaid guidelines contained in the two notifications.
