According to reports, Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee, while hearing the suo motu case to check on Tamil Nadu governments' preparation to deal with the rising COVID-19 cases in the state, asked about the availability of vaccines, ventilators, Remdesvir and oxygen in Tamil Nadu.

Advocate General Vijay Narayan reportedly informed the count that the state has 31,000 vials of Remdesvir as of Thursday morning, and the government is providing the viral drug at a cost of Rs 783 to private hospitals, against a maximum retail price of Rs 4,800.

The Advocate General further said that the state has the capacity to manufacture 400 tonnes of oxygen per day but its requirement is only 150 tonnes a day. "So, 65 tonnes was diverted to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana recently," he said.

Narayan informed the court that the state is not facing any shortage of beds or vaccines currently, and said, "Tamil Nadu has 9,600 ventilators in the government sector. Of them, 5,887 are earmarked for COVID-19 patients. Private hospitals have about 6,000 ventilators. Of them, 3,000 earmarked for COVID-19 patients," he said.

The court observed that if Tamil Nadu is producing oxygen more than it needs then "it should help other states".
