High Court Issues Guidelines to Deal With Swine Flu in Indore

Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh high court on Monday directed state government to improve facilities for treatment of swine flu patients in all the districts of Indore and Ujjain divisions due to concern over spread of H1N1 virus.

Ajay Mishra has filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) and High Court, has issued 11-point direction for dealing with Swine flu in Indore. The court has directed state to take immediate steps for setting up a laboratory for swine flu. Justices SR Waghmare and J K Jain, while hearing another PIL over health division bench directed that the earlier order of HC would be applicable in entire region except setting of lab.


Considering the seriousness of the issue, court observed that situation is very alarming and state government have not taken effective steps to control the spread of H1N1 virus.

HC reissued the 10 point guideline for entire region for dealing with swine flu in which court directs state to ensure adequate supply of medicine for swine flu at private and government hospitals, increase number of beds and facility for treatment of swine flu patients and provide free treatment and medicine, hold meeting with principals of schools, colleges and representative of different organisation to spread awareness about the diseases to mention a few.

Advocate PK Shukla said around 13 districts of Indore and Ujjain division which come under the jurisdiction of Indore High Court will have to implement the direction of court. "Along with Indore people of other districts of the region are also facing problem because of Swine flu but in absent of adequate medical facilities they have to travel to Indore for treatment," he said.
