In Tamil Nadu, 476 people were diagnosed with corona infection in a single day yesterday. In the capital Chennai alone, 221 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus and 95 in Chengalpattu.
Health officials have been instructed to increase the number of coronas being tested to 500 per day in Chengalpattu district to 1,000. In Chengalpattu district, 400 beds are ready for corona treatment.
It is the federal government’s policy to impose new restrictions when the epidemic rate exceeds 10 percent. At present the impact rate in Tamil Nadu is only 2 to 3 percent. New restrictions are likely to be imposed if the corona positive rate increases.
Thus he said.
