Tamil Nadu doctors want educational institutions to shift to online mode

CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu Government Doctors’ Association has written to Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, requesting that all school and college classes be conducted entirely online.

The association's president, Dr K. Senthil, stated in a letter to the chief minister that the Omicron variant of the Covid-19 is a super spreader that spreads four times quicker than the earlier Delta variants. He said that school and college students attending classes off-line would act as super spreaders, and that classes should be moved to an online mode to avoid this. The doctors' group stated that now was the best moment to impose limits because the variant spreads quickly and if action is not taken soon, it will be too late and the sickness will spread to a huge number of individuals.

The association also stated that the current health system may not be able to handle the significant spread of disease if a super outbreak occurs, and urged the government to intervene.

The doctors' body stated in the report that safe distancing, masking, and the use of sanitizers, as well as frequent handwashing with soap, must all be practised continually and that no lethargy be displayed in any of these. To avoid the spread of the disease, the group also asked the Chief Minister to prohibit all types of gatherings, including weddings, religious festivities, and attendance at death grieving and funerals.
