Health Minister J Radhakrishnan spoke to reporters after inspecting additional Covid beds at the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital here and said no sudden decision would be made about another lockdown that would disrupt the public.

He added that there is some callousness on the public and official levels and warned against losing the hard-fought wins in the fight against Covid. In the past three weeks, the majority of cases have been detected in colleges, training centers and in the workplace, he said. « For each person who tests positive, we have directed that 30 contacts should be tested, » said Radhakrishnan continue. He added that over 51% of those infected in the state were between 18 and 45 years old – an age group that accounted for only 9% of deaths. « Now there are fewer cases in slums and more cases in apartment complexes, » said Radhakrishnan.
