Central government has told Supreme court that it can’t pay compensation of INR400,000 to families of COVID-19 victims, as it only applies to natural disasters. In its affidavit, centre added that denying compensation for diseases other than COVID-19 would be unfair, and that COVID-19 has caused over 385,000 deaths. Government is reeling under severe financial strain, and cannot pay everyone.
