16 Gujarat hospitals get govt notice for refusing virus patients 

May 20, 2020 17:43 IST

The Gujarat government has served notices to 16 private hospitals for refusing to admit Covid-19 patients referred to them by the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. In the notices served under the Epidemic Diseases Act, the civic body had declared 16 hospitals as designated Covid-19 facilities in an order on May 16 and directed them to provide 50 per cent of their beds for Covid-19 patients. The release stated that notices were served to these hospitals for ‘deliberately and willingly disobeying and causing grave prejudice to the safety and security of the public at large’. The govt has also warned of action ‘under civil and criminal law, including filing of FIR, against erring hospitals’.
