Expressing serious concern over the continuous rise of Covid-19 cases in the national capital, the Delhi High Court said Delhi may soon become the “corona capital” of the country.

On 5 November, the city reported 6,715 cases from 58,910 tests. The death count rose to 6,769, with 66 deaths being reported.

The court also pulled up the state, Centre and MCDs for their failure in resolving financial disputes which have resulted in non-payment of salaries to employees, including doctors and health workers, during the pandemic.

The division bench observed the Delhi government was claiming to have topped the list of a maximum number of Covid tests but has “gone completely haywire on pandemic and infections”.

“We are taking that very seriously,” said the bench, while hearing petitions filed by North, South and East MCD employees for release of their salaries. The HC had earlier also taken suo motu note on the issue of unpaid salaries of doctors working in NDMC hospitals.

The court said it cannot be expected to act as an arbitrator between the government agencies and look into their budgets to find out who is at fault. “It is for all government agencies to work in unison, put their heads together to come up with a solution and find requisite funds to release salaries,” said the court.
