Covid-19: Why Are You Not Invoking Essential Commodities Act To Regulate Prices Of Life Saving Drugs? Telangana High Court Asks Govt.

first_imgNews UpdatesCovid-19: Why Are You Not Invoking Essential Commodities Act To Regulate Prices Of Life Saving Drugs? Telangana High Court Asks Govt. Akshita Saxena11 May 2021 5:56 AMShare This – xThe Telangana High Court on Tuesday asked the State Government to explain as to why the provisions of the Essential Commodities Act, 1955 and/ or the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 are not being invoked for regulating prices of life saving drugs essential for treatment of Covid-19. A Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Hima Kohli and Justice B. Vijaysen Reddy has ordered the State Government to submit by the next date the manner in which it proposes to fix the maximum retail prices for Covid related treatment administered by the Government as well as private hospitals. It has also sought capping of Covid-testing prices, and other essentials like medicines, PPE kits, etc. “Why are you not invoking Essential Commodities Act to regulate prices of these resources? Nobody has such deep pockets to pay the prevailing unreasonable prices,” observed CJ Kohli at the outset. However, the Bench declined a suggestion to pass deterrent orders against private hospitals that indulge in profiteering activities. “This is not the time to take action against Hospitals. Their services are required. We can only ask the State to regulate their charges,” Justice Reddy said. In its previous order also, the Court had asked the State to fix a particular rate for medicines, Oxygen supply and other such essential like CT scan and blood testing that are required for Covid-19. The Secretary, Health and Family Welfare was directed to lay down guidelines regarding the maximum amount that can be charged uniformly by private hospitals for such critical facilities. Lockdown During the hearing, the Advocate General informed the Bench that the State has decided to impose a lockdown for ten days starting tomorrow, until 6 am of 21st May, 2021. It submitted that no relaxations will be given during this period except for four hours, i.e., from 6 am to 10 am for the public to obtain essentials. It was also stated that procedure is being evolved for issuing of emergency passes and ensuring that members of public who are due for securing second dose of Covid vaccine are able to access hospitals for the same. Taking note of this, the Bench expressed its dissatisfaction for not providing sufficient notice to the public to make requisite arrangements in advance. “Any state gives time to its residents to prepare for a lockdown. But this state has given a kneejerk reaction and decided today to impose a 10 days long lockdown from tomorrow. How much time will this give to the people to put their houses in order. People will only get 6 hours and will be forced to swarm out in panic,” Justice Kohli observed orally especially with regard to daily wagers and migrants. The Bench directed the Police authorities to ensure that Covid-appropriate norms are followed at all times and directed that Eid celebrations during relaxed hours on 14th, that shall intervene the Lockdown period, shall be videographed at all prominent places and will be placed on record on the next date. Oxygen Supply The State Government informed the Bench that despite the directions issued by the Court to the Centre for ensuring that full quota of allocated Oxygen reaches the State, the deficiency was not made good. “We want zero deficit on the next date of hearing,” the CJ said while directing Union of India to file an affidavit by the next date, explaining how the deficit in allocated supply of Oxygen has been made good. Further, keeping in mind the fact that third wave of Covid-19 is also being forecast, both State and Centre have been directed to file an affidavit explaining the manner in which they propose to implement Supreme Court’s order dated April 30 in its suo moto case, for ensuring augmentation of supply of medical Oxygen to the States.

Mayor Jay Gillian: City Will Build Pickleball Courts

first_imgThe following is Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian’s weekly update to citizens posted on Friday, June 26. Lines for five crude Pickleball courts are painted on asphalt beside the Ocean City Intermediate School. The city sought bids for resurfacing those courts and for building five more on city-owned property on Shelter Road.Dear Friends:Last night, several members of Ocean City’s Pickleball community attended the City Council meeting. I would like to thank them for participating in the meeting and for their many e-mails to me and City Council. I want to be very clear to everyone that the city will be building permanent Pickleball courts for the community.Unfortunately, the city received only one bid for the construction work and it exceeded the estimated cost by more than double. If the bid had not been so high, we would have awarded the contract last night and moved toward starting construction. City Council and I want to provide our community the best recreational facilities possible and both pickleball and tennis facilities are key projects for this year.A reminder that tomorrow Michele and I will be guests at the Ocean City Community Association (OCCA) meeting at 11:30 a.m. at the Howard S. Stainton Senior Center. Following the OCCA meeting, we will hold a town hall meeting at 1:00 p.m. on back bay dredging, also in the senior center. I hope all of you can attend one or both of the meetings. Following the town hall meeting, the presentation will be available on the City website at www.ocnj.us/MAYOR.Have a wonderful weekend!Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayorlast_img read more

Weekender provides very fond memories

first_imgI love the Weekender. We all love the Weekender. Nothing there is groundbreaking. The Weekender is a fun tradition, and the rivalry with Stanford over the past few years has made it all the more exciting.As a freshman, less than a month into my college experience, I made my first Weekender trip. It was, and still is, the most exciting sporting event I have attended as a fan. After being on the fence for a few days, a friend and I bought cheap front row tickets just a couple of days before the game.As we arrived at Stanford and began to walk around in what can only be described as a dirt parking lot with a forest growing in the middle, it became evident that USC fans travel well — especially to this game. At the time the Cardinal were No. 13 and we were No. 14, though I’m sure all the delusional USC fans (I will include myself in this group this time) thought that the Trojans were guaranteed to come away with a win.Then there was an Andre Heidari field goal, a J.R. Tavai fumble and the rest is history. The team went nuts, the fans went nuts, the band went nuts and my love for the Weekender was born. I have to think I at least partly reflect on this game with such happy thoughts because of the outcome and how exciting the game was despite being just a 13-10 final score.At the same time though, I only remember two football plays from the whole game — the aforementioned — but I have equally clear memories of all of the Trojan fans who were there as well.On the drive up, I remember thinking that every car we passed must have been a USC fan since there was so much Cardinal and Gold on what is normally a quite dreary trek up the 5.There was the tailgate, where even though we were technically in enemy territory, many families brought us into their tailgates, fed us and let us hang out.Then in the stadium, what should have clearly been a Stanford crowd was overshadowed by the USC faithful who in addition to traveling in force, also cheered in force. Since school hasn’t even started yet for Stanford, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the crowd be a majority of Trojan fans again. This would also explain why the Stanford band will probably be booed when they take the field, as they were in 2014.Of course at that time, USC was nationally relevant and Stanford didn’t have a player who was a Heisman snub. The USC-Stanford rivalry, though, has been full of surprise results and unexpected endings. Even though the focus, and rightfully so, has consistently been on how terribly USC was shown up by Stanford not once but twice last year, there is an undeniable magic about the Weekender, for both teams, that renders neither home field safe from the visitor.USC beating Stanford on Saturday is a long shot. Clearly Stanford has the more talented, stable and disciplined team, but anything can happen on the Weekender. Last time the Trojans and Cardinal met in Palo Alto, USC snapped the Cardinal’s 17-game home winning streak which was, at the time, the longest in the country.Now, if USC defeats Stanford, it will probably have played a role in Christian McCaffrey not winning the Heisman for the second year in a row, and it will immediately put talks of a playoff berth in the minds of Trojans everywhere.Here’s to hoping that this year, even with the odds against the Trojans, the flocks of USC fans will show up, fighting on and that win or lose, the trip will give us a memory worthy of starting a story, “Remember that one time we all went to the Weekender?”Hailey Tucker is a junior majoring in broadcast and digital journalism.
