Total Covid-19 cases cross 90 thousand mark in Tamil Nadu

In Tamil Nadu, the total Covid-19 cases crossed the ninety-thousand mark today with 3943 people testing positive for the infection.

The state higher education minister KP Anbalagan is one of those who have tested positive today. He is admitted to a hospital in Chennai.

Meanwhile, the Chennai Corporation is getting a tremendous response to its 24-hour call centre on Covid-19.

AIR correspondent reports, the Chennai Corporation is running a centralized Covid-19 call centre at its headquarters in Ripon Building, functioning 24-by-7 for the past three months.

15 other similar centres are also functioning at as many of its zonal offices.

They are being managed by doctors, psychologists, trained counsellors and representatives from geriatric care centres.

Officials say they have received about 2.80 lakh calls from different corners of the city since the inception.

The calls range from seeking help in testing and hospitalization to seeking counselling to ward off excessive fear psychosis.

The counsellors say some of the Covid-19 positive patients and their family members under home isolation narrate the hostile treatment they face from the neighbours.

In such situations, effective interventions are being made to ensure their demands are met, grievances addressed and are all happy.
