COVID-19 has devastated many lives and it is “heart wrenching” that the survival of children who lost either or both parents during the pandemic is at stake, the SC said, but expressed satisfaction over schemes announced by the Centre and states to provide succour to them.
“We are glad that the UoI and the state governments/UTs have announced schemes to provide succour to the children in need. We have no doubt that the authorities concerned would leave no stone unturned to attend to the immediate basic needs of the crestfallen children,” said a bench.
