High positive cases are lodged in Chennai (6228), Chengalpattu (1608), Salem (747), Ranipet (624), Coimbatore (1509), and Thiruvallur (1152). It feels relaxed to note the increasing counts of patients discharging after recovery.
The death rates are in account of 144 in the state. Eleven patients died in the Chengalpattu due to oxygen shortages, and this incident created chaos between the doctors ad the patient's relatives. The district collector is heading further to know the reason behind the death of the patients.
The vaccination process is in progress, and the shortage of vaccines is getting less in the state. Two lakhs of COVISHIELD and 75,000 Covaxin has been sent to Tamil Nadu from Mumbai yesterday.
