A bench of justices Devan Ramachandran and Kausar Edappagath after reviewing the conditions of kerala hospitals about their exorbitant charges on COVID-19 patients said “We found unconscionable billings. ₹22,000 for PPE kits, our humble kanji is charged ₹1,300. And Dolo is charged ₹30-40 each. We won’t allow this loot.” The issue was taken by the court after a 28-year-old man came up on social media to speak about his experience of looting private hospitals in aluva in Kochi. After various complaints from  all over the state the high court intervene and enquired about the issue.“As per the new order, the price of the general ward for a day would be ₹2,645, including registration, bed, diagnosis, oxygen, nursing and doctor fees and other services,” the government counsel informed the court. But other medicines like them remdesivir will be charged separately according to the courts order. Taking stringent actions the court said in cases of over charging the penalty will be 10 times the rate, but the counsel of the private hospitals seem to be opposing the court's order.
