A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi noted that in August and September 2020, there were 35 cases where people gathered in large numbers either for making protests or for other reasons. It said “On the face of it these are cases of gross violation of rule regarding maintaining norms of social distance and face mask. These gatherings are contributing to the spread of Covid-19. Therefore, the state and all authorities must come down on such breaches with heavy hands.” The bench made the observation while hearing a plea filed by one Sai Datta, stating that there was a large congregation in a rally held on 28th September 2020 and a large number of persons participated in the rally without wearing masks. Instances of agitation/protest held by various organizations are also cited by the petitioner. Advocate Rameshchandra appearing for the petitioner argued that “If such rallies or protests are allowed to be conducted in violation of the orders under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, it will result in large scale spreading of pandemic of COVID-19 especially when number of positive COVID-19 cases in the State is rising every day.” The petitioner has relied upon the order under Section 10(2)(l) of the Disaster Management Act, 2005 dated 29th August 2020 by the Chairman of the National Executive Committee. The Guidelines for Phased Re-opening (Unlock 4) are part of the said order. The submission of the petitioner is that similar guidelines are a part of further order passed by the Chairman of the National Executive Committee on 30th September 2020.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Government dietary guidelines recommend that people eat fish twice a week. And we know that fish are full of omega-3 fatty acids—which can benefit both heart and brain. But is it safe to eat fish every day? “For most individuals it’s fine to eat fish every day,” says Eric Rimm, professor of epidemiology and nutrition, in an August 30 article on Today.com, adding that “it’s certainly better to eat fish every day than to eat beef every day.”While it might be safe to eat fish every day, Rimm says it’s still not clear if there is any added health benefits to that level of consumption. “Most of the science isn’t looking at daily consumption,” he explains. “But many, many studies have shown that those who have it a couple of times a week have a lower rate of fatal heart attacks compared to those who don’t eat any.”There are some exceptions, Rimm cautions. For example, pregnant woman and children should avoid larger fish with longer lifespans—like swordfish and tuna—because those can have higher levels of toxins, such as mercury. There are also environmental considerations. Read Full Story
