No Posters To Be Pasted Outside Homes Of Covid Patients: Delhi Government To High Court.

The Delhi government was represented by its additional standing counsel Satyakam. He told the high court that its officials have also not been allowed to share details of COVID-19 positive persons with their neighbours. Nor resident welfare associations or WhatsApp groups.

Delhi government has said that posters will no longer be put outside the homes of Covid +ve persons.

The AAP government today told the Delhi High Court that it has instructed all its officials not to paste posters. It used to past posters outside homes of COVID-19 positive persons or those in home isolation. Also informed that those pasted have been ordered to be removed.

In view of the submission made by the government, a bench of Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad disposed of the PIL. The claimant was seeking framing of guidelines to do away with pasting posters. The said posters were outside homes of COVID-19 positive persons or those in home isolation.

The bench had a view of steps taken by the Delhi government. As claimed by lawyer Kush Kalra, who raised the issue, there is no need of monitoring it any longer.

Mr Kalra, in his plea through advocate Kush Sharma, had contended that freely circulating to RWAs and on WhatsApp groups, the names of persons who tested positive for COVID-19 was “leading to stigmatisation and drawing of unnecessary attention”.

It had also claimed that this has resulted in persons “shying away and deliberately choosing not to test themselves” to shield themselves from the “public embarrassment and stigmatization” which is also caused by pasting posters outside homes of COVID-19 positive patients.
