In Tamil Nadu, 743 people were confirmed COVID-19 positive today, taking the total to 13,191.

The caseload in Chennai has crossed the eight thousand mark with 557 new patients.

On the other hand, a record 987 patients were discharged today leaving the active caseload at 7,219.

Three patients died of the disease taking the fatalities to 87.

The new positive cases include 83 returnees from Maharashtra.

AIR correspondent reports as Chennai carries more than half of the caseload in the state, additional measures are being taken there.

The city civic body in Chennai has decided to deploy 2,500 more field workers in about 2,000 hutment areas as COVID-19 caseloads in the pockets are significantly more.

They will be monitoring the health conditions of the people and create awareness about safety protocols. Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu Government has told the Madras High Court, it has so far sent back about one lakh and eight hundred guest labourers to their home states so far and the process is continuing.

Hearing a petition on early repatriation of those who want to return, it said the Shramik Special train fare is being borne by itself.

The court has directed the State and the Centre to submit a detailed reply by next Tuesday.

It may be noted that over 2.43 lakh labourers have registered themselves to go back.
