CM to hold meeting with top officials to curb covid spread

Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami is set to meet officials and Ministers today to discuss about measures to intensify the fight against COVID-19 spread, as the positive cases spike sharply in the state.

More than 6,500 new positive cases were registered in Tamil Nadu on Sunday and the number of cases have been increasing rapidly. Though state government had announced restrictions, it also warned that if cases keep increasing night curfew is likely soon.

The Chief Minister is set to discuss about the restrictions that can be laid during night curfew and other necessary measures to keep COVID-19 spread under control.

As Model Code of Conduct (MCC) is in place, sources said that Chief Minister cannot take decision on his own, but only can discuss and recommend to the officials who can implement with the approval of Election Commission of India.
