The Covid impact is felt in Chennai, Chengalpet, Kancheepuram, Coimbatore and Tiruvallur districts. Covid clusters are also reported from a few educational institutions in Chennai. All of them were fully screened and those affected were isolated and given appropriate treatment with the help of institutions.
“If a few people get affected by the virus in work places, festivals, weddings, meetings and events, the chief minister orders all of them to be examined, monitored continuously and provided appropriate treatment,” the release said.
The chief minister advised the administration to create awareness among people to strictly adhere to the preventive measures such as wearing masks, frequent washing hands and social distancing and the need to follow adequate testing, monitoring, treatment and vaccination.
The meeting was attended by chief secretary V S Irai Anbu, DGP Sylendra Babu, health secretary J Radhakrishnan and heads of departments of municipal administration, revenue, rural development and panchayat raj and health officials.
