The court said that when pregnant women go for deliveries they cannot wait five to six days for carrying out the tests and declaration of the results. ;Immediately requests should be accepted and immediately results should be given,; the bench said.The Delhi government told the court that as per the advisory issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), the tests results would be declared within an hour. The advisory was however silent on the timeline regarding processing of requests for testing, the Delhi government said, adding that it has issued a notification which states all applications for tests would be processed within 48 hours.The bench asked the Delhi government to place the advisory and notification before it and listed the matter for hearing on Thursday, July 9. The court also asked it whether negative outcome of a rapid test was acceptable or whether an RT PCR test result also be required before admitting a pregnant woman.The Delhi government counsel sought time to take instructions on the query raised by the bench. The court was hearing a PIL by a lawyer who has sought that test results of pregnant women be given priority.The high court on June 22 had remarked that 5 7 days cannot be taken for getting COVID 19 results for pregnant women prior to admitting them in hospitals for child birth and asked the ICMR and Delhi government to look at expediting it.Thereafter, Delhi government filed an affidavit stating that prior COVID 19 test was not mandatory for admitting pregnant women in hospitals for in patient interventions, including surgery and deliveries, and in emergent situations, treatment would not be denied for want of test results.The test can be conducted simultaneously with the treatment and if the result comes out to be positive, the pregnant woman would ideally be transferred to a dedicated COVID 19 hospital for further management, the Delhi government had told the high court.It had also said that it has "expanded " the use of Rapid Antigen Testing at hospitals to ensure availability of test results in quick time and this will further take care of difficulties being faced by people patients, including pregnant women.ICMR, in its response filed through central government standing counsel Vivek Goyal, had said it has issued guidelines for management of pregnant women during the COVID 19 pandemic and there are no restrictions for testing pregnant women for COVID l9 symptoms.

However, on June 18, the government showed 3,21,302 tests, and a test per million number of 16,910. Divide the first by the second and Delhi s population miraculously falls to 19 million. This number is then seen for every day since June 18.What this does is to boost the number of tests being done per million population. If Delhi s correct population of 20.2 million is used for every day after June 18, the tests per million fall from 16,910 on June 18 to 15,906, and from 20,247 on June 22 to 19,044.A similar anomaly exists in data on hospitalisations. On June 12, the government showed that 5,361 people were hospitalised. In the next five days, 3,015 people were admitted to hospital and 2,037 were discharged, as per the Delhi medical bulletin. Logically then, there should have been a total of 6,339 who were in hospital. The Delhi medical bulletin, however, tells us that 5,448 people were hospitalised.How it is beneficial to show a lower number of people who are hospitalised is not clear, but it does help to show that there is a less of a bed shortage in hospitals. After June 18, the Delhi government stopped putting out data on daily hospitalisations and discharges.
