The second wave has spread like a wildfire this time and patients suffering from the infection have been recommended by the doctors to take Remedesivir injections. But the state has been witnessing shortage of the injections for a long time now. It has been reported that some miscreants are selling the drug at higher price. To take action against this and also condemning the act, Surat district of Bar Association has asked its lawyers to take actions.
Prominent lawyers including President of Surat District Bar Association, Brijesh Patel and vice- president Naishadh Jasolia in an online meeting decided that no member of the association will defend any accused arrested for black marketing of Remdesivir in the district. They said that people engaged in the black marketing of the drugs in the midst of pandemic are “enemies of the society.”
