Hyderabad: A two judge panel of the Telangana High Court comprising Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice N Tukaramji on Thursday directed the State Government to strictly comply with the latest directives issued by the Union government to prevent the spread of Omicron variant on December 21.
The panel, on the pleas made by Senior Counsel L Ravichander, specifically required the government to issue directives on the control and management of large public gatherings during the ensuing festival season from Christmas to Sankranthi.
The Chief Justice voiced concern at how people are still not using masks and taking minimum preventive steps. When senior counsel pointed out the need for a mechanism at the State borders, the panel directed the government to consider setting up similar facilities as set up at the airport and quarantine if necessary. The panel stated that there was a need to prevent inter-State spread of the new variant.
