Delhi High Court refused to declare the entire defence colony as a contaminated zone on account of surge of covid 19 cases in block C against the guideline issued by central government on 16th of May.  The order was passed by a division bench of Chef Justice DN Patel and Prateek Jalan. 

The court further directed the respondent to increase the number of beds for Covid 19 patients and also try to increase the ventilators so that all the patients need can be facilitated. The Court also asked the authorities in charge to keep the suggestion of the petitioner counsel to utilize      “ready to move in” government flats for putting infrastructure like bed, etc for covid patients. 

The petition was therein disposed of.
