The Supreme Court intervention to make Covid-19 tests at private labs free was unnecessary. While the intentions of the court cannot be questioned, such judicial activism during a complex medical emergency is unlikely to help. Our lordships shouldn’t fix what isn’t broken and allow expert policymakers to lead the way.

  1. Why free service from testers only ? Why not by lawyers , by Doctors and by the honorable Judges themselves.
    There are more cases awaiting testing in the courts than for covid-19
    It is a very noble idea if the entire nation gives up profit, salaried people give up savings/ surplus for 1 year to make up for the losses we will have due to covid-19
    IF PM MODI GIVES A CALL FOR THAT, DO NOT BE SURPRISED, IF IT HAPPENS.

  2. poor people of our country don’t go to a hospital unless it is unavoidable.To encourage them to come out for tests it is must because our policymakers did not think about the before announcing a sudden and lockdown which resulted in the exodus of labors throughout the country.

  3. Instead of free testing in private facilities, the government should ensure that the charges are moderate. Without straining the resources of the public healthcare system, more people who can afford it should be encouraged to get themselves tested. It would be reassuring if a lot of tests take place and very few people test positive.
