Lockdown in India: Prepare Oxygen buffer stock with states.
At the same time, the court has asked the central government to work with states to prepare a buffer stock of oxygen in order to deal with the emergency and this emergency stock should be kept separately.
The court has directed the Center to prepare this buffer stock within four days and said that the level of oxygen availability in this buffer stock should be maintained daily.
The court has clarified that this buffer stock of oxygen designed to deal with emergencies will be different from the quota of oxygen allocated to the states.
Asked to formulate a national policy in two weeks about the hospitalization of patients.
The court has directed the central government to formulate a national policy regarding the hospitalization of patients within two weeks. All state governments will follow that policy.
The court has said that as long as the central government makes a national policy in this regard, no patient in any state or union territory is forbidden to be hospitalized or given necessary medicines for lack of local residence or identity card.
