The Supreme Court today demanded answers from the centre while highlighting that coronavirus patients were treated as "untouchables" once the authorities pasted posters outside their home. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, however, said that its "guidelines do not contain any instructions or guidance regarding affixing of posters or other signage outside the residences of those found Covid positive".
