Central Govt: Only those individuals who are directly exposed to Covid-19 patients are to be termed as “frontline workers”

Yesterday, Centre clarified the Delhi High Court that it has taken strict actions based upon rational and justifiable policy and norms to begin with the process of vaccination of the citizens depending upon their vulnerability and exposure to the pandemic disease.

This reaction of Centre has been submitted before a divisional bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli in relation to the suo-motu cognizance taken, by way of Public Interest Litigation concerning the issue of giving Covid-19 vaccination to Judges, Lawyers, and the Court staff.

The Centre has further submitted in its affidavit that it might not be fair and just to create a completely separate class consisting of lawyers and others below 45 years of age and vaccinate them and leave the rest of the citizens just because they are engaged in other trade, profession or business.
