KATHMANDU: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has drawn the government’s attention towards taking a meaningful step by forging the national solidarity for the control and prevention of Covid-19 crisis.
Issuing a press statement today, the NHRC has sought the mobilization of the entire government’s mechanism and the three-tier government for the treatment of the infected. The rights body has urged the political parties to get united for dealing with the crisis more effectively. It has asked the government to address impacts of Covid-19 crisis, to ensure people’s access to services most essential for their health and daily life, making its smooth supply with continued regulation and to boost up the confidence of health workers and security personnel and those working on the front line during the crisis.
Similarly, the government has been directed to manage livelihood for daily wage earners and workers with a meager income. As the NHRC said the findings of its monitoring are that the hospitals are presently crowded by Covid-19 infected, patients are struggling to get beds and hospitals with the large numbers of infected ones are running out of oxygen which is crucial for the treatment of serious cases.
Private hospitals are found reluctant to admit patients, overcharging inpatients and supplying and selling drugs and equipment required for Covid-19 treatment at exorbitant prices, the NHRC said. Uncontrolled and unsystematic trans-border movements in the southern plains and other managerial weakness suggest a high risk of local transmission, it added.
