There is no need for a full lockdown in Tamil Nadu to deal with Covid, according to the state's health minister.
On Tuesday, January 11, Tamil Nadu Health Minister MA Subramanian spoke out on the Covid-19 and the state's lockdown situation.
He claimed that a complete lockdown is unnecessary. MK Stalin, the Chief Minister, has stated that the economy should not be harmed, according to the health minister. For the time being, Ma Subramanian believes that the constrained lockdown is sufficient.
Due to an increase in cases, the Tamil Nadu government prolonged the existing Covid-19 restrictions till January 31. The night curfew, which has been in effect since January 6, will be in effect until the end of the month.
On Monday, Tamil Nadu reported 13,990 new infections, bringing the total number of active cases to 62,767.
Fearing a huge gathering in temples during the Pongal (harvest) festival, admission into religious houses of worship has been restricted from January 14 to 18.
The government, on the other hand, has authorized individuals to travel in state-run buses with a 75 percent capacity to reach their home districts.
