Heavy rains expected in TN tomorrow, health experts worried

Chennai: Rains are expected to lash various parts of Tamilnadu tomorrow. The showers are expected to go on till 19 April.

The Regional Meteorological Centre has predicted thunderstorms and moderate showers. People are not advised to come out from 11.30 am to 3.30 pm.

It may be noted that there was downpour last week which came as a relief to people who were suffering from the increasing heat and coronavirus lockdown.

It was the first summer shower and the forecast had warned of more rains. But the rains had got the medical experts worried as Covid-19 is said to thrive on cooler climate.

It is said that viral respiratory infections like flu are known to increase when there is a drop in temperature.
Experts are trying to bring the coronavirus under control ahead of July-September monsoon, reports said.
