Important decisions taken during CM’s meeting with officials

Ensuring at least 90,000 RT-PCR tests daily to detect cases, aggressive testing in Covid-hit areas, tracing 25-30 contacts of infected persons, and holding of ‘fever camps’ were among the decisions taken at the medical experts meeting, chaired by Tamilnadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami on Monday.

The meeting also decided to declare streets/residential apartments as micro- containment zones, if three persons were infected with coronavirus.

The other decisions were that a person should be admitted in a Covid Care Centre or in a hospital, based on the severity of the infection, levying penalties by officials of Health/Police/Revenue Departments or local bodies on those who do not follow the standard operating procedure (SOP), and all those who are eligible for Covid-19 vaccination to be vaccinated.

It was also decided that all government and private hospitals must follow the government announced SOPs to reduce the mortality rate, while arrangements have been made to vaccinate all frontline workers employed in Health/Revenue/Police departments and local bodies.
