Privacy a fundamental right, rules Supreme Court of India
Dr KK Aggarwal
In a landmark judgement delivered yesterday, the Supreme Court of India unanimously ruled that privacy is a fundamental right. 
In its order, the nine-judge constitutional bench headed by Chief Justice of India said "The right to privacy is protected as an intrinsic part of the right to life and personal liberty under Article 21 and as a part of the freedoms guaranteed by Part III of the Constitution".
Article 21 ensures protection of life and personal liberty."No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to procedure established by law."
In doing so, the Bench overruled the two earlier judgements, also by the Apex Court, which had ruled against privacy as a fundamental right.

As per the IMA, this virus causes cold sores around the mouth. HSV-1 is increasingly becoming a cause of genital infection too, mainly in rich countries.
A genital herpes outbreak or episode can occur when the HSV-1 or HSV-2 virus is reactivated from its dormant stage. This is an incurable disease, and once contracted, a person may experience outbreaks throughout their lifetime. The first outbreak of herpes is often the longest.
