Suggesting a transitory restriction on cigarettes and bidis during the pandemic, the Bombay High Court on Thursday looked for a reaction from the Centre and the state government and alongside the information on Covid-19 patients who were dependent on smoking. The court said it was of the compulsion of considering such a boycott as Covid-19 infection influences the lungs and powerless lungs are seriously infected.
The court also guided the Maharashtra state government to guarantee all possible steps to make Remdesivir drug accessible to Covid-19 patients, expressing that the patient or family members will not be made to run from place to next’ to find the medication.
The applicant raised questions over shortage of Remdesivir drug, lack of oxygen supply, Covid-19 bed the executives and deferral in leading RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen Tests to identify Covid disease.
The High Court communicated “pain over shortage” of Remdesivir and said that it would not have emerged with the exception of the sudden rise in cases because of the subsequent wave, “which was potentially not in expectation around two months back”.
We will also suggest the same thing as High Court did. Quit smoking during pandemics and make your lungs stronger to fight with corona virus. As this virus is now directly attacking the lungs of the human beings. Due to which the oxygen level fluctuates.
So, keeping all this points in mind High Court passed out the order to ban Smoking. The High Court will hear the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) next on May 4.
