The Bombay High Court has shunned from meddling with the state disaster management authority’s directive that made it mandatory for people to undergo Covid-19 test for people visiting Konkan region after 12th August.

By upholding the clause in the Government order issued on August 4, 2020, justices KK Tated and Milind Jadhav observed that the order was issued to ensure the safety of the people of Konkan region by staying away from contacting the corona virus.

According to the Bombay High Court, in order to contain the spread of the deadly pandemic, effective steps need to be taken especially during the transportation of citizens from one point to the other dismissing Santos Gurav’s petition, a resident of Konkan region.

Through his advocate, Harshal Mirashi, the petitioner moved the high court where he contended that the order of the government, particularly the clause that makes Covid-19 test mandatory, restrained his freedom to travel to Ratnagiri district in Konkan to attend the festival.

Mirashi further pointed out that the test was mandatory and that people were only allowed to travel only if the test result was negative regardless of whether one was travelling via private vehicle or state transport.

While declining to accept the contention, the high court maintained that there was a likelihood of the spread of the infection if people travelled from one district or region to the other and that effective steps needed to be taken to curb the spread of the pandemic.

“Not very long ago, Maharashtra, Mumbai in particular, had the highest number of Covid-19 cases. Even today the number of total active cases is significantly high,” said the bench.
