Tamil Nadu: Infection rate come down but still not under control, strictly impose lockdown

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin on Saturday proposed an entire lockdown without any relaxations in the state for fourteen days to bring down the COVID-19 infection.  He said,  the infection rate has come down but still not under control. Listing out the various measures taken by the government to augment the oxygen supply for COVID-19 patients Stalin said that people are roaming on the streets as if it was a normal holiday.

Speaking at the meeting of lawmakers, Stalin said that medical and healthcare experts had suggested two weeks complete lockdown without any relaxations to bring down the COVID-19 infection numbers. The present lockdown with total shutdown on Sundays announced by the government comes to an end on May 24 early morning.

Detailing the hardships of the health staff during the pandemic, Stalin said the state had lost many doctors and the health department was facing a major psychological distress. “They work without worrying about their lives. They cannot be given more burden and pressure anymore,” Stalin said.

If only the public took a pledge that they would not get the virus and pass it on to someone, the infectious disease could be ended. Stalin said, adding how Covid-19 took away precious lives last year and even put the future of many families in question.
