Chennai: DMK President M K Stalin urged the Chief Minister Edappadi K Palanisamy to appoint a team of epidemiologists to ascertain if community transmission of the Coronavirus had started in Tamil Nadu and also begin serological testing in the State.

Referring to the efforts made in Delhi, Stalin, in a statement, said the place with the second largest number of infections in the country had begun serological testing to find out the spread of the Covid-19 and Tamil Nadu should also follow suit.

 

Asking the Chief Minister to take his advice seriously, Stalin wanted the government to pay the relief amount promised for the frontline warriors of Covid-19 who were infected. He also demanded supply of proper PPEs to the frontline workers, including doctors, nurses, health workers and police.

Demanding the provision of details of Covid-19 testing made at airports, hospitals and the districts, Stalin said free face masks should be supplied to the people through ration shops and Rs 5000 relief should be paid to each family card to help people in the lower rungs of society who had lost their livelihood due to the lockdown tide over the crisis.

Among the other pieces of advice the Opposition Leader gave to the Chief Minister were reduction of electricity charges during the lockdown period and cancellation of semester examinations for students in universities and declaring them all as passed.

Stalin referred to the Chief Minister’s statement that the Opposition Leader had not given him any constructive advice on tackling the pandemic and urged him to listen to what he had said and follow them.

He also urged the Chief Minister to try and make his Ministerial colleague R B Udhayakumar, who had allegedly threatened the Madurai M P Su Venkatesan for demanding more tests, understand the virility of Covid-19.
