New Delhi: Given the worsening situation of Coronavirus in the country, the Supreme Court has said to impose lockdown. The court has said that keeping in mind the increasing cases of coronavirus, the central and state governments can consider the lockdown. Let us know that many states have imposed Corona Curfew, but despite this, the pace of infection is not taking the name of stopping.
Restrictions on Super-Spreader Events
The Supreme Court, while hearing on Sunday night, also said that we will urge the Central and State Governments to consider stopping the mass celebrations and super spreader programs. The apex court has told the governments that they can consider a lockdown to curb the second wave of coronavirus in the interest of public welfare.
‘Attention should be taken of the poor’
The court said that arrangements should be made to protect the weaker sections during the lockdown. The court said that it is familiar with the socio-economic impact of the lockdown, especially it has the greatest impact on the poor. Therefore, if there is a need to impose a lockdown, then the government should first make arrangements to meet the needs of the poor.
Experts also want Lockdown
This time the situation in the country is worse than last year. During the first wave of Corona, the lockdown was imposed in the whole country, but now when the situation is continuously deteriorating, no one is thinking about the lockdown. Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently said that lockdown should be the last option. While experts believe that lockdown is necessary to break the chain of corona infection.
Dr Guleria gave this suggestion
Recently, Dr Randeep Guleria, Director of AIIMS, Dr Randeep Guleria, had also said to put a strict lockdown to overcome the uncontrollable corona. Dr Guleria said that a strict lockdown is needed to defeat the second wave of the Coronavirus, as it was imposed in March last year. He said that wherever the infection rate is more than 10%, there should be a lockdown at the local level like last year.
