The Department of Health has asked parents to be vigilant as the risk is higher for children under 5 years of age. In Kollam district alone, 85 children have been affected by the flu so far. The affected children are being admitted to hospitals and receiving treatment.
In this context, Health Secretary Radhakrishnan has said that the people of Tamil Nadu should not be afraid of the tomato virus that is spreading in the Kollam area of Kerala.
The spread of tomato virus in Kerala has been discussed with the state authorities. Precautionary measures have been taken in neighboring states to hear about the virus and treatments in an integrated communication system.
And the tomato virus is a new type of infection that already affects people with chikungunya. It is spread by mosquitoes that breed in fresh water. It is also known as the tomato virus because of the red spots on the skin. Tomatoes have nothing to do with the virus. The Tamil Nadu Medical Department is ready to deal with any kind of infection.
Thus he said.
