Karnataka HC Issues Notice To State/Medical Council On Petition Claiming Refusal Of Medical Treatment To Non-Covid19 Patients

The Karnataka High Court issued notice to the state government and the Karnataka medical council on a petition claiming that during the complete lockdown period individual medical practitioners/doctors refused treatment to patients suffering ordinary health issues. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice M Nagaprasanna has directed the medical council to place on record whether it has received any complaints and what action was taken in that regard, before the court on July 17. The petition states that the practise of refusing to provide medical treatment amounts to violation of fundamental right to health of patients.
